We made this salad for our very first catering job. Back then we called ourselves "4ate7 Wholefoods" - for some reason we thought it was a cool idea to make a food pun out of our street number: 487. Terrible brand name aside, this salad is still a solid favourite and a true crowdpleaser. It is best with barbecued chicken. Leftovers will be most welcome and will last up to three days.
