This is so good. Mixtures of tastes are really great. I mix everything together except the lettuce then add the mixture to the lettuce right before eating it. I also add some rasperry vinegarette (spray bottle from Wishbone) dressing. This is really best if you let it set for a while...you know, tastes better tomorrow. Make it vegetarian by leaving out the chicken. This is loaded with healthy omega-3's from the avocado and the pecans, the good fats.
