"I had some left over chicken breast to use so tried this recipe. It is very good; light, low calorie, low fat and totally delicious. I might try it with strawberries instead of oranges next time."

"We make this regularly in the summer and sometimes during the cooler months. I eliminate the red onion, since we aren't raw onion lovers, and I now substitute roasted sunflower seeds for the walnuts as my little girl is nut allergic. It's still a great, light recipe, especially for hot summer nights."
