I've had this recipe since 1998 and finally tried it last night. DELICIOUS and very easy. My husband is a picky eater but he gave it 5 stars. So easy and fast to make and perfect for a girlfriend luncheon.

I've been making this salad since it first appeared in an issue many years ago. It couldn't be easier to make, and is always delicious. It's a hit with kids and adults.

This is good. It is one of those recipes that you can follow the method and make as many or as few as you want. I only had one chicken breast half, so I seasoned it with chili powder and grilled it ( I thought that would taste better) when I had the grill fired up for another meal. I sliced it and placed it on two serving plates of lettuce and mixed equal amounts of ranch dressing and salsa (as much or as little as needed). I sprinkled a little cheese and crushed chips over each serving. Very good!
