You are right, Dorothy. This was a perfect take to work lunch salad. Simple yet flavor-filled ingredients. I made enough to serve 6 because I needed to use up some left-over chicken. My husband and I will eat on it the rest of the week. I sprinkled some sunflower seeds on top which added to the crunch. Thanks for another great recipe.

I did as you suggested and packed this as my lunch. This is a great salad. I sprinkled with toasted walnuts but just about any nut would work. Nice and light. Excellent flavor. Thanks Dorothy.
