I love this salad! When we lived in Kenai this was a special treat because the only time we'd go to Chili's is if we were in Utah, or Anchorage. But now we have a chili's 10 minutes away, and it's just as easy to go there to eat it.

It is quite a bit of work for a salad, but I think it's worth it!
