This is a gorgeous layered salad presented in a glass trifle bowl! As a side dish for your party, a little of this salad goes a long way in giving your guests a nutritious combination of fresh greens, oven roasted chicken, and a wonderful savory dressing. Also great for a lunch -or- as a main course for a light dinner. Would be lovely for Derby Day or Mother's Day. From Boar's Head via Kentucky Derby Party. Tip: To make this a vegetarian salad, you can easily replace the chicken chunks with cubes of cheese (such as cheddar or swiss) and/or hard-cooked eggs, and it is just as good. Enjoy!
