You know summer's in full swing when the flowers are in bloom and the kids are running through the sprinklers to keep cool. It's also the perfect time to shut down the oven and whip up a cool summer salad for dinner.
The past two days I've done recipes with chicken, so of course I have tons left over. And what better way to make use of all the extra chicken than with a delicious salad? Since summer's finally here, the nights are much warmer than they used to be, and the last thing I want to do is cook over a hot stove. I'd much rather whip up something cool, delicious and quick. Nothing's faster than cold chicken, mayonnaise and some dried fruit. Nothing's better, either.
