This is a great healthy salad ~ We all loved this one!
Great Salad! I added a couple tablespoons of pineapple juice to the marinade. I grilled the chicken instead of using the microwave and it was delicious! The dressing was perfectly proportioned and wet the greens without stealing the show. Thanks Paula!!!
A nice filling salad. A good combination of sweet and savory. I added grape tomatoes because I needed more color in my salad. I also added pineapple juice to the dressing. Delicious.
