Reviews for Picante Broccoli Chicken Salad
"I modify this recipe by using 1/2 roasted red sweet pepper, omitting the green pepper, and reducing the broccoli to 1 cup. I place the chicken mixture on top of room temperature tortillas, roll them up and slice them into three sections and chill before serving."
"Super easy, tasty and even the kids like veggies this way."
"My husband and family really like this salad even as a main course. Anyone I have ever made this for really likes it also. I often triple or quadruple the batch and we will have it for lunches for the week!"
