A GREAT chicken salad! And I was surprised at how absolutely beautifully this comes together. I marinated the chicken overnite, then grilled it. I followed directions and then did chill the salad for a couple of hours. I let sit out a bit so that it was not cold when served--served it over greens. Wonderful! I will surely make this again!
