RECIPE NOTES:

Make ahead tip…You can prepare this salad the day before, through step 3. The flavors get even better on day 2!

For the chicken, you can use rotisserie chicken or any leftover chicken you may have. If you grill the chicken, drizzle three large boneless skinless breasts with olive oil and season with salt and pepper before grilling for about 5-6 cups of cubed chicken.
