Popcorn Chicken Salad Recipe

Popcorn Chicken Salad Recipe

Here’s a refreshing salad that’s great for lunches at work from Teresa Wilkins-Reckard in Monroe, Indiana. "I can mix up the dressing at home, then pick up enough salad ingredients at the store to last for several days," she notes. "My family and friends like it, too. And variations are easy to make.” —
