This is a great salad! It is really flavorful versatile and packs a healthy dose of protein and fiber. was very popular at a party. It packs well for picnics and lunches and stays crisp for 5+ days. It is great plain but can also be put on a bed of lettuce or in a pita pocket, and is great with added leftover chicken. It makes a great main dish and a tasty side dish as well. It is very easy to scale down this recipe. The servings listed are for main course size- if you are going to be using it as a side you will get a lot more servings.
