Pretty Summer Salad – Chickeny

Summer is the perfect time for salads and they are even better when they are pretty like this one. I initially read the recipe here, though I made a few small tweaks when I gave it a whirl at home. It was actually pretty filling for the two of us! Enough for lunch the next day πŸ™‚
