This salad has been a lunch-saver for me. It’s so simple to throw together, really tasty and satisfying, especially on those days I jog in the morning. I discovered the recipe on Picky Palate, which I found a couple months ago and love seeing what Jenny has to post each week. I’ve been eating this salad for lunch for the last week (hence the fancy Tupperware container). It’s so easy to put together in the morning (I cook a couple chicken breast and marinate them in BBQ sauce the night before) and toss it in my bag to take to the office. Of course, I drizzle some ranch dressing over the top before eating it. Yum!
Note: I don’t really measure any of the ingreidents, I just eye-ball it.
