We eat many of our salads ‘naked’ without dressing. I recommend not pouring all the dressing onto the salad instead, only add as much as you usually like to dress your salads. And to remember to pour the dressing just prior to serving.
I have added chicken to this salad to make a nice weekend lunch, however you can leave out the chicken to serve this tropical fresh salad as a side for your next BBQ!
