  4. Obviously I love recipes like this one too - and I love how you used a package coleslaw mix for the base. Mandarin oranges in salads are my favorite!

  7. That is one filling, nutritious and colorful salad. I wouldn't mind having it for dinner, though I'd probably replace the chicken with some tofu.
