I got the idea for this salad from a pasta salad I used to make. The only change was to leave out the pasta. This is also good with tuna instead of chicken. You'll need two or three 6-ounce cans of tuna. Also, if you can afford the extra carbs, this is nice with even more grape tomatoes. I bought a pint of them and decided to use them all.
