4I had some small frozen cooked shrimp and decided to add them to the salad. It was an excellent idea, if I do say so myself! I would think you could add cooked chicken, turkey, tuna, whatever you'd like if you chose to.
5If plating it for serving, you may want to put tomato slices around it or enhance it with a vegetable of your choice, but it is not necessary. I chose tomatoes because it is fresh tomato season right now, and I can't get enough of them!
