    My husband and I thought this recipe was decent but not fantastic enough to make again. As another reviewer mentioned, the cooking time on the chicken may be a bit short for you (some of my pieces were undercooked). I used chicken breast tenders.

    This salad is so yummy. Toast the almonds and be sure to use dried cherries (don't substitute with raisins or craisins).

    Tiny word of caution -- make sure that the chicken is done after a few minutes only on each side.

    This salad was excellent. I used Simply Fruit Apricot Spreadable Fruit because I needed to make it sugar free and it was excellent. I think next time I will also add chopped apricots to just give it a little more apricot flavor...along with the cherries. Really good, will definitely make this again. My kids liked it too, they even ate the green beans.

    This sald looks beautiful and tasted delicious. I loved how it is plated, not a jumbled mess all tossed together, more like a mini-meal all laid out.
