When life gives you limes...Vacationing in the Bahamas and they don't have lemons-but they do have plenty of limes. This was very good. As per another review, I added a little bit of honey. I served this for dinner so I added some cubed swiss cheese, bacon, and quartered hard cooked eggs. It was sort of a tropical Cobb salad. Yummy!
A nice way to have chicken salad when you don't want mayonnaise in it. I would add a bit of sugar or honey to the dressing next time, to make the lime flavor less sharp. I will make this again! Thanks for posting WI Cheesehead. Roxygirl
Can you believe I made this salad, loved it and completely forgot to review it? I can't, its too good to forget, so good I was looking through my reviews trying to find it again and couldn't find it... jeez! I love the lime vinaigrette that covers the chicken - I omit the radishes. Obviously good enough to be made again if Iooked through my bulging cookbooks to find it again!
