Shake all together in a bottle. Prepare the day before for a better blended flavor.

Chicken Prep:

I have elaborated on this salad since this picture was taken. Looks like I also used Green and Red Onions on it. Really, you can add whatever salad fixings you like.

Princess Fiona,

Lovely salad for office luncheon. Have to try it when I return to Madrid. Madrid has an enormous Chinese community and thus, product availability.

Puglia, is more traditionally Italian and though there are expats and foreigners, they are mostly from Northern Europe, the UK and the USA.

Thanks for posting and the photo says it all !
M.C.

C&P. Heading to MN soon and I imagine the pantry inventory of mandarin oranges (and canned pineapple) is still high. Thanks!
