Looking for a meal with the perfect balance of sweet and savory?

Then look no further.

I had this salad at a restaurant not too long ago and tried to recreate it with things I had in my own kitchen.

Although this salad already has a lot going on, there are many small modifications you can make to make this salad different every time.

You can also change it up by simply changing how you prepare the chicken.

For example, you can marinate or season the chicken with buffalo sauce, Italian dressing, salt and pepper or you can buy a rotisserie chicken.
