Tequila Recipes

The easiest thing to do for tequila recipes would be to create a drink, but that is way too easy for tequila recipes. What about a grilled chicken salad?

Grilled Chicken Salad

What would be good for a grilled chicken salad? I was thought of a strawberry spinach salad with strawberries. What if I do that but as a watermelon chicken salad with a twist?


Tequila Lime Vinaigrette


Casa Noble Tequila

The idea of using Casa Noble Tequila in this watermelon salad actually came from Casa Noble Tequila. They asked for recipes that featured watermelon and chicken. So I had to think of tequila recipes that would be watermelon chicken based.

Lime Vinaigrette

To incorporate the Casa Noble Tequila, I decided to make a lime vinaigrette. The lime vinaigrette would be wonderful on a grilled chicken salad. Plus the lime would bring out the flavor in this watermelon salad.

Chicken Watermelon Salad with Casa Noble Tequila Lime Vinaigrette Recipe


Chicken Watermelon Salad with Casa Noble Tequila Lime Vinaigrette is a great grilled chicken salad! The lime vinaigrette features Casa Noble Tequila to give this watermelon salad a kick.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • salad mix
  • grilled chicken
  • watermelon chunks
  • 1 container (3 oz) Del Monte mandarin oranges, drained

Lime Vinaigrette

  • 2 tablespoons Casa Noble Crystal Tequila
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/8 cup chopped green onion
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. First you want to place your salad in a bowl. Any salad mix will do, if you like Romaine, get a Romaine, mix, if you like a blend has spinach, get that. They happened to have an ice burg mix on sale so that why I used it.
  2. Next, toss in some grilled chicken. This a great way to use up left over chicken, or you can use those packaged grilled chicken chunks that Tyson has.
  3. Then add the oranges and diced up watermelon to the mix, then set the salad aside so you can prepare the dressing.

Lime Vinaigrette

  1. Add the Casa Noble Crystal Tequila, I used this one because it has a light flavor, which is perfect for salads, the mustard, honey and cider vinegar.
  2. Whisk it all together until you feel the honey is not sticking to the bottom of the bowl. Basically, your dissolving it into the other liquids.
  3. Squeeze in the lime juice.
  4. Then finally whisk in the olive oil and green onions to the dressing. Give the dressing a little taste and adjust it with salt and pepper to your taste level.
  5. When all to your taste level, pour the dressing over the salad.
  6. Finally toss everything together. making sure the dressing covers everything.
  7. Then enjoy the this salad!
