“A really impressive restaurant type dish. Very colourful and attractive with an amazing taste. Most of this can be prepared ahead of time. The vegetables and chicken can all be prepared up to 8 hours ahead of serving and refrigerated. Just before serving cut up the avocado, toss the vegetables with the dressing and assemble the dish. Prep time does not include marinating time.”
