I made just the dressing portion of this recipe. It was to die for. I keep looking for stuff to dip in this lovely dressing.

I made two portions (the whole recipe but only divided into two) for lunch for DH and I last week! It was too cold for him to grill -- so we used the good ole George Forman which worked just fine. We left out the radish, tomato and potato simply due to personal preference! I also used splenda in place of the sugar! This was a great hearty salad that, with the addition of a french roll, kept me full until dinner time, but didn't make me feel so full I needed a nap during the work day! By the way -- I sent lunch packed this way: Salad in a big tupperware bowl, chicken (already sliced) in a zip lock to re heat in microwave and dressing in a separate container in order to keep everything as fresh as possible! Thanks for posting we will enjoy this many a time to come! Made for Holiday Tag 2009!

My family really enjoyed this hearty salad. I added herb mixture/salt/pepper to make the dressing and chicken more flavorful. It would have been too bland for us without herbs and salt and pepper. Prepared for Craze-E Contest. Thanks for sharing!
