Baja-Spiced Chicken Salad With Chutney Dressing

“This is a wonderful salad that has color, texture and loaded with taste. Although there seems to be lots of ingredients, part of it can be done in advance. Serve with some french bread, this salad is quite satisfying. I used DiB's Parmesan Peppercorn Ranch Dressing (18877) and Tisme's Mango Chutney (191312), but bottled dressing and Major's Mango Chutney would be a good substitute.”
