Chicken Chopped Salad Recipe

Chicken Chopped Salad Recipe

Lime dressing gives lively flavor to this crunchy salad tossed with peaches, peppers and peanuts. The unusual combination is a great way to use up leftover chicken or turkey and packs well for lunches or picnics. It's also terrific with the addition of grapefruit sections or pineapple tidbits. -Diane Halferty, Corpus Christi, Texas
