      We loved this. It was very easy to put together, and very very yummy! I did make a couple of substitutions: I used 1/4 cup oil, and 1/4 cup water to the dressing, and had to substitute red onion for the shallots. I didn't have any brocconcini, so I used 3/4 cup shredded mozzerella. You do need to add all the dressing. (I thought at first that it seemed a lot, but there's not a lot of flavour in the chicken or cheese, so it needs all the dressing. And a word of caution: watch the crutons carefully. I nearly burned mine! My husband's even asked for a print out of the recipe so he can make it himself. I guess that means this is a keeper! Thanks Ms. Pia!
