    Fantastic recipe. I added more cucumber, shredded carrots, and chopped red cabbage. Loved the dressing. Next time I may add black beans to the mix. Had it with low carb, whole wheat flat bread. It's a keeper, for sure.

    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.

    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!
