BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad

Rated as 4.3 out of 5 Stars

"This healthy salad was adapted from one I ate at California Pizza Kitchen. The lime juice intensified by the jicama draws out the flavor of the vegetables, so an oil- or cream-based dressing is not necessary."

The lime juice dressing really didn't add much flavor or "pizzazz" to make this salad noteworthy. I liked all the rest of the ingredients though & will be finding my own lime dressing next time.

Super delicious and so easy to make each persons with just the ingredients they want on their salad.
