A healthy and fresh tasting salad that is very different from our usual salads. I ended up making a little extra of the dressing, (I would recommend doubling it), but otherwise followed the recipe. I will make this again.
I found it pretty boring. Didn't taste bad, but definitely didn't wow me. I won't make again.
This salad is so good. I wasn't sure that all of the flavors would go together, especially the pineapple. But it works. And the dressing is wonderful!
A salad that never gets boring!! Great as a main dish .. I doubled up the pineapple serving though because they are a great addition. I also added a four cheese mexican mix to it! Everything is better with cheese!
I LOVED this recipe. I made a few changes - used normal onion (did not have red one on hand), skipped the pineapple, and fresh spinach instead of the romaine lettuce. I would definitely make more dressing. I fried the chicken on just a little bit of olive oil, and seasoned is with salt and Mrs.Dash. My kids loved it and I was happy to serve a healthy and delicious dinner that was beautiful and colorful. We want to make this dish when we host our health conscious friends. They will love it! Thank you!
This is a great recipe! Even my veggie hating husband had seconds! The only changes I made were to leave the avocado on the side and up the amount of garlic in the dressing. Thanks for sharing Cocoadawn!
I really like this salad. I marinaded my chicken using the marinade from the "Luau Chicken Sandwiches" recipe on this site. The flavors taste great together. Thanks for the recipe.
This was a really good salad. I didn't use fresh garlic and thought the dry minched garlic would work about the same. I wouldn't recommend that, although everybody else thought it tasted good. I couldn't stand the dry crunchiness of the garlic. The rest of the salad was great! I used the George Foreman grill to cook the chicken and seasoned it the way we like. And, the lime juice was great but we also liked adding the pineapple juice from the can of pineapple we used(obvisously we didn't use fresh pineapple and I would recommend the canned pineapple). It gave it a really nice flavor.
