Chopped Chicken Salad

There is a Italian restaurant in the Seattle area, Cucina!Cucina! that makes this very yummy salad. The recipe makes a huge amount of salad which is tossed with this vinaigrette, so you pretty much need to eat it the same day or just don't mix in all of the vinaigrette at once. All you need to complete this meal is some fresh bread sticks and a lemonade!
