I love this salad in the summer time. This is a good way to use up leftover chicken, or you could grill the chicken and add it to the salad warm. I really believe that the dressing is the key to this salad. I serve this salad with bread and make a meal out of it. I did not include the time to cook the chicken in the preparation time because I use leftovers or store-bought chopped chicken.
