Thai Style Chicken Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Geema

If you have any left over chicken, this is the salad to make. I love it in a pita half with lots of fresh cilantro. But, it's also a great canape topping for a party.

I used 3 cups of left-over chopped rotisserie chicken, and had to substitute red onion for the shallots, which added a nice color contrast. It was good. Next time I will use a bit less lime juice and cilantro - they were just a little overpowering for me, but DH enjoyed very much as it was. Thanks for sharing.
