"Very tasty salad. It makes a great main dish on a hot day. I added some grated carrot and also some chopped cilantro. Definitely will make it again."

"I have made this salad 8 or 9 times now. It has become my wifes favorite. It is so good and easy and the dressing smells so good. We make it without the chicken as a side to many dinners too. Just a great recipe."
