Mom would put this little salad together at least once a week. It's a very simple recipe, that's big on flavor. This is one of those recipes that have no measurements; you just make it by the salad bowl.
If you don't have time to make the stock, use 2 to 3 boxes of chicken broth. Bring broth to boil; add 2 to 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts diced, and 1 teaspoon granulated garlic; cook 10 to 15 minutes. Then follow the steps for the soup.
