Very tasty, healthy salad! Quick to throw together on a weeknight, when chicken is already made.

I added some fried wonton strips that were in my fridge and needed to be used up. Great addition! Will definitely do that again if I make it again.

Super quick and tasty. Used leftover Barbacoa meat from tacos because we didn’t have leftovers from Adobe chicken. Worked really well, loved the dressing. Skipped the cashews, would use if I had them but good without.
