A very nice change from the boring mayoniase based salad. Love the heat.

The recipe was amazingly delicious, especially for something with almost no fat. I was in a hurry, so I used a roasted chicken from my supermarket. I also used a tablespoon of Vietnamese chile/garlic paste instead of the serranos and garlic.
