This salad recipe from Priscilla Gilbert of Indian Harbour Beach, Florida is perfect for a summer luncheon and a great way to use up leftover chicken and fresh mint from your garden. "It also tastes just as good made with nectarines," notes Priscilla.

"A very refreshing summer salad, and to make it even easier we used some leftover rotisserie chicken. We also added in some avocado. The dressing seemed too vinegary tasting, so I matched the vinegar with 1/4 cup of olive oil, brought the dressing up to a five star. Oh and we topped with some Feta cheese...Yum!"
