    Great tasting salad. The flavour combination worked well. I sprinkled the chicken breasts lightly with Tex-Mex seasoning before browning in roasted garlic olive oil. If short on time I think ranch dressing would work well with this salad.

    Very simple and easy to prepare. Had a nice mild flavor accentuated by cumin and cilantro. A cool and refreshing choice that would be good for picnics as well as pot-lucks and warm-weather days!

    This is a very good salad. I omited the bell pepper due to stomach sensitivity & it was still very flavorful. I also decreased the fat content by using light sour cream & light best foods mayonaise to create the dressing. I'm sure you'd never notice the difference.

    Good salad. We liked all the mix of flavors. I left out the chicken and added avocado. Served with a queasadilla for meatless Mon.

    I made this last night for dinner and my family enjoyed the flavor of it. DS did pick out some of the veggies, but otherwise ate it all. I loved the flavors of the dressing with the pasta, lettuce and chicken. This makes such a nice light dinner for these warmer evenings. Thank you for sharing with us, we will make this again this summer.

    Very good, I used jalapeo peppers instead of the green chilies, took it to work and everybody loved it. Thanks
