This is my new favorite salad. I’ve made it several times over the past couple of weeks and it was devoured each time. It is a whole meal in and of itself or you can use it as a really hearty side dish. I even brought it to a potluck and it was a great choice. I love that it is hearty, yet still so light and crisp and cold. It makes me feel like I’m eating well and still leaves me feeling full. Feel free to use a rotisserie chicken or leftover chicken breast. I did because I’ve been seriously short on time lately. I did whisk up my own dressing because it only takes like 2 minutes, but if you are short ingredients you can always use a bottled italian dressing. It’s quick. It’s easy. It’s healthy. And it is filling. How many wins is that?
