Notes

  • If you shred your chicken into containers on the weekend, this salad will take even less time to make, as you can simply add that already prepped ingredient to your dish
  • You can leave the skin on or take it off 
  • I like to reheat the chicken in the microwave for 2 minutes so that it is a warm salad
  • You can use any flavour you like for the dressing
  • I use a balsamic roasted garlic dressing as it is quick and easy, plus it a nice change from your traditional French or Italian style salad dressing
  • The dressing I use is a combination of olive oil, balsamic vinegar and roasted garlic
  • You could use continental cucumbers in this recipe, however they are much longer so you won't have the same visual appeal of the dish. They are cheaper though and taste much the same (I use Lebanese cucumbers which are a lighter shade of green and about ⅓ of the length).
