    This was incredible. I simply made as a salad bowl and did not go with the jars ( although for on the go I think its a fantastic idea ). I love chicken satay with a peanut butter sauce, but admittedly wondered if a cold peanut dressing would be the same. I need not have worried it was amazing. A nice change from the normal chicken salad recipes. I would not change anything here other than perhaps going 1.5X the chicken and doubling the dressing ( but just my taste ). Do try this!!!  -  04 Jul 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
