I can NOT say enough wonderful things about this salad. It was created to taste like one of the Rumbi Island Grill salads. Shandra who created My Food Storage Deals and Deals to Meals is the brains behind this beauty. She has a real knack for making fabulous knock off recipes. Her sister is a friend of mine who has shared many of her recipes with me. I am NEVER disappointed when I try any of them. We eat this salad over hot brown rice. Sounds a little different, I know but it is GREAT. Even when the chicken and other fixing’s are all eaten up my girls will eat the left over rice and sauce over chips, the next day. It is a real treat. I hope you give it a try!
