I have been making this salad for my family for years. It's very versatile...add or take away what you want...I like to load my salads with lots of veggies...around here many restaurants add fries to these salads...I prefer to fore go them...I like a lot of onion, garlic and plenty of spice on the chicken pieces as they saute, and lots of melted sharp cheddar, mozzarella cheese melted over the chicken... I had left over mixed salad from the other nights dinner, so this is how I used it.

Enjoy!
