Grilled chicken salad

Sokehah Cheah | 2:28 PM | | | |


This chicken salad is tasty and delicious yet takes very little time to prepare.  Looks a bit 'undressed' as I've only used juices as a 'top-up'. Use some orange juice, mix with some calamansi juice, toss in a bit of salt, add in some sugar to taste, mix and just drizzle over .............. tangy and appetising!






This salad is full of citrus flavour and nutritious as well......... want some?
