“I love this salad because it's a wonderful source of vitamin C and protein,” says Tina Ruggiero, RD, nutritional consultant for Driscoll’s Berries. “It's also quick to prepare and pretty to look at!” This recipe makes about 11/3 cups of the flavorful hoisin-sesame dressing (more than the 1/2 cup you’ll need for the chicken salad), so Ruggerio recommends refrigerating the rest and using it during the week to flavor other salads or drizzle over grilled meats or fish.
