Loved this salad. We enjoyed the combination of flavors - the nice rotisserie chicken always allows for a quick dinner with flavor options too! Our family also loves vinaigrettes so this was a winner for us on that note - I really enjoyed the flavor and nevermind extra dressing(I wouldn't use all the ater though). This is a nice summer salad- perfect for a work night!! Good job,Chef whomever,this is a winner in our book! RSC#10
I would have to agree with the other reviewers. Fantastic dressing! I myself do not like much dressing. Since it is very flavourful - a little goes a long way. I poured half (4 oz) of the salad dressing onto the salad before serving it. I found that the salad still "drowned" in it for me. But like I said, I do not like much dressing. Next time I'll pour one quarter into the whole salad. Or I'll just leave the dressing on the table and let others control the amount of dressing themselves. I am following Weight Watchers. I figured out that you get 12 servings of dressing at 1 point each (about 20 ml). I like the fact I'll have a fantastic dressing leftover for other salads throughout the week! 100g (just over 3 oz) of the Rotisserie chicken (skinless and no wings) is probably about 4 points. I figure an appetizer sized salad with dressing is about 5 points and a good sized (double) salad about 9 points.
