      Great tasting salad. The flavour combination worked well. I sprinkled the chicken breasts lightly with Tex-Mex seasoning before browning in roasted garlic olive oil. If short on time I think ranch dressing would work well with this salad.

      Very simple and easy to prepare. Had a nice mild flavor accentuated by cumin and cilantro. A cool and refreshing choice that would be good for picnics as well as pot-lucks and warm-weather days!

      This is a very good salad. I omited the bell pepper due to stomach sensitivity & it was still very flavorful. I also decreased the fat content by using light sour cream & light best foods mayonaise to create the dressing. I'm sure you'd never notice the difference.
