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.

This was great. It looked so nice on the plate too. I felt like I was a restaurant chef or something.

Loved the salad dressing! I'm going to make this dressing to keep on hand for random lunch/dinner salads.

Threw in some leftover quinoa as well for some extra protein. Yum!

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.
