5 star for taste and ease and this recipe is easily lightened up for less fat and calories. A very good tasting salad. I made this once as directed and a second time 'lightened up". Like most salads all the fat and calories come from the dressing. So I just lightened up the dressing and voila! Same great taste and only a fraction of the calories. Lightened up version - chicken: I did not use limeade concentrate to coat the chicken. I just used straight, squeezed lime juice. dressing: 2 tablespoons of sugar, and only 1/4 c of oil leaving the remaining ingredients for the dressing intact. Then to compensate for the liquid I removed, I added some lime juice mixed with water. I blended all ingredients together for a wonderful salad dressing with much less calories. Just a small drizzle of dressing is all that is needed. salad: to save a few more calories, I only used about an 1/8 cup of pecans and crushed them up, then dusted them on top of the salad. This is a very good recipe as is, but there was not much difference in taste once it was lightened.
