Picante Broccoli Chicken Salad Recipe

Picante Broccoli Chicken Salad Recipe

Meet the Cook: Since our family likes things spicy, I often add a fresh jalapeno pepper to this salad. It's a simple, savory way to use up leftover chicken. Plus, it's so eye-catching, it could double as the main dish and the table centerpiece! -Krista Shumway, Billings, Montana
