Loved it, and liked the chicken much more here than last night. Next time, I will use leftover teriyaki chicken. I would not go to the effort of making the adobo chicken just to have it for this salad.0 Helpful

Loved the salad dressing! I'm going to make this dressing to keep on hand for random lunch/dinner salads.0 Helpful
Threw in some leftover quinoa as well for some extra protein. Yum!0 Helpful
I just love creative salads and this one did not disappoint. The dressing was a little oily and we didn't need much because the chicken was full of juice.0 Helpful
