    This is one of my favorite "go to" recipes! I make it more often without the chicken than with, but it is a good way to use leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken. I use frozen corn & peas to keep it extra cool for taking to picnics, block parties, tailgating, etc. On occasion, I add fresh tomatoes. It also works well with small shrimp! Just a GREAT recipe!

    Good recipe. Could have used something for a little added flavor. Good one pot meal, though

    I was expecting to not like the dressing for this salad but I ended up loving it (I'm not a big fan of Asian flavored dressings). I made the salad & dressing the day before & then added the dressing to my salad right before I ate it. This is a great dish to take on a picnic or potluck. It's a gread summer salad perfect for when the weather is hot. I love that you can mix in any vegetables you want. I used frozen edamame instead of peas & didn't use the squash (I don't like squash). I wanted to add broccoli to replace the squash but forgot to.

    Easy, light and delicious. I usually omit the peas, use frozen corn (thawed), slightly less than a can of black beans, a bit more red pepper and squash, and a package of the Perdue short cuts diced. I also up the hot sauce to 1/2 tsp but the result is not spicy, just flavorful. I've been making this for years - always a summer favorite.
