I also cheated a bit and used a store bought rotisserie chicken but followed the remainder of the recipe. Delicious as is! But the next day - I decided to add some fresh cilantro to the salad and that was even better!!

Easy to make. I made plenty of it and froze some of it also.

It works great for taking on a picnic!

Delicious! I made this for my parents, DH and I and we licked the platter clean. I did use a rotisserie chicken but otherwise followed the instructions. Will be using this quite often in the warm summer days. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag game 2011.
