This is a perfect light meal for the hot summer days. When grilling chicken breasts, grill a couple of extra and put in fridge for use in this salad. This recipe is compliments of The Diabetic Cookbook.

An excellent salad & 1 even DH said was among the best he has ever had. That is high praise from my meat & potatoes guy who happens to only favor blue cheese dressing & none other. I made my dressing using Recipe #228879 by AshK (a favorite w/us) & made 2 servings as written except that I was not able to grill the chicken used. I expect it would be even better w/grilled chicken, but the grill season here has gone & left us w/colder temps, wind & rain. I cannot imagine changing a thing about this salad. It's easy-to-fix & everything works to perfection. Made for Fall PAC 2007 & thx for sharing this keeper recipe w/us.
