This may be my new favorite salad! We made it last night and loved it so much that we had it again for dinner tonight. It's hearty enough that it can be an entree without the chicken. Tonight we threw in some walnuts. It's absolutely wonderful. Read More

For a salad this is so filling. I almost couldn't finish my serving! The dressing is delicious. Next time I make this I'm going to substitute Mandarin oranges for the grapes and use rice vinegar instead of white wine for more of an oriental twist. Read More
