April 29, 2008 // Franchising.com // SAN DIEGO – Want to savor the flavor of Mexico, but can't afford a vacation south of the border? Then try out Jack in the Box® restaurants' Acapulco Chicken Salad. With the taste of cilantro and lime, this Latin-inspired salad is like a trip to the tropics, but without the pricey plane ticket.
Jack's Acapulco Chicken Salad, which debuted for a limited time in 2006, features a mix of fresh lettuces topped with shredded pepper jack cheese, grape tomatoes, cucumber slices, red onion and lime wedges served with blue corn tortilla strips and cilantro lime dressing on the side.
