We created this salad by accident - leftover grilled Sweet Chili Teriyaki Chicken breasts were just waiting to be munched on, but when added to crisp salad greens, and healthy and crisp matchstick carrots and crunch sweet red peppers, we had something special going on. This salad just screams for fresh pineapple as well, and I make this two ways - with grilled fresh pineapple when I've got a few extra minutes, or just chunks of fresh pineapple when the natives are restless...
I use my homemade Sweet Chili Teriyaki Glaze, Marinade & Sauce - we tend to go thru bottles and batches of this stuff like crazy in the summertime, but if you are in a hurry, you can use your favorite bottled sweet chili sauce in the marinade and sauce. It's my go-to sauce in the summer - we use it for marinades, sauces, barbeque glazes and salads.
Sweet, spicy, crisp and crunchy, colorful and flavorful - this is a summertime salad just made for enjoying on a porch swing or under some cool shade on the deck.
You'll want to give this recipe a try, and then you'll see why it is a perennial favorite at our house or for bringing to a picnic or potluck. This is a salad that everyone loves!
