This was an excellent salad. It reminds me of a Cobb Salad. I also added some crumbled feta cheese to add some zing to it, but either way it is a good one.

This had a nice zing to it. I made it as a side salad for blackened salmon, so I didn't use the chicken. I added a clove of garlic and about 3 dashes of cajun seasoning to the dressing. Definitely a keeper.

This salad was so good and a snap to put together. Instead of frying the chicken whole, I sliced the breasts into strips and then seasoned. Not a sun dried tomato fan so I left those out but because I had everything on hand, I added broccoli, carrots, cukes and topped with feta. The avocado beautifully complimented the spice of the chicken. Very nice and thank you!
