“This easy, 5-ingredient recipe makes a nice alternative to potato salad for a summer side dish.” It’s also refreshing, colorful and a great way to use up leftover chicken. Enjoy! Bridget Francoeur – Adrian, MI

"I made this and the Parmesan Knots from Taste of Home for a luncheon jewelry party I was hosting and everyone loved both. The salad was easy to make and easy to eat off the plate without having to sit at a table. Will definitely use this recipe again! Try it AND the Parmesan Knots. Great light lunch!"

"An interesting combination of 5 items makes up this salad. It is easy to prepare and I will use it as a "take to work" salad."

"My daughter LOVES this. It's fast cheap and a snap to make and for a summer meal, this is wonderful, we used red grapes, though. It gave it more color."
