When it is 100 degrees in the shade, who wants to cook? But everyone needs dinner; this is quick, easy and tastes like a gourmet salad from a ***** star eatery!

We love, love, love this salad. The dressing is the real star here, with an awesomely delicious flavor. Linda calls for canned chicken in her recipe, but we like using leftover rotisserie chicken instead. Either way is terrific! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
