Introduction

May be served hot or cold. Change veggies, nuts to suit your taste. I used grilled chicken breast or if in a hurry buy a rotisserie chicken to use. May be served hot or cold. Change veggies, nuts to suit your taste. I used grilled chicken breast or if in a hurry buy a rotisserie chicken to use.
