      Very nice refreshing salad! Used two leftover grilled chicken breasts. I'm eating the leftovers now for lunch. Only added some red and yellow bell peppers. Got the "ultimate" compliment ... last night husband said, "hey, this is good!" ... not something that I often receive from pasta salads. :)

      This is a very simple and delicious recipe! Perfect for a hot summer day. I substituted a few things, Zucchini for the broccoli, Celery for the red onion, Garlic powder for the garlic cloves, and I added Baby Carrots, and Lemon Juice.

      As usual this was great! I made it this morning and we had the salad for lunch after church. The flavors are very good, and it would be good even without the chicken. Thanks Nurse Di :) Carole in Olando
