"A a perfect summer salad, the original recipe called for tuna, I made it with grilled chicken, grilled steak would be awesome also, we loved this salad! This salad is served with the potatoes still warm, not cold, the dressing is drizzled over the warm potatoes, I recommend grilling the chicken in advance."
