This is a very flavorful, fairly spicy, Asian-type salad. If you don't like it too hot, substitute sweet chili sauce for the hot chili sauce or mix half and half. The flavors need a few hours to blend, so it's a good idea to let it sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours and up to 24 hours. Salad can be nicely garnished with additional cilantro and lime slices. You can also use diced cooked chicken in place of the steamed chicken breasts if desired.

Excellent!! Easy to make, and I actually added fresh green beans for more vegtables. I like spicy food and this has a nice kick so if you do not like spice use the sweet chili sauce. I will be making this one again.
