A giant salad loaded with the tropical flavours of Hawaii! This recipe is based on the marinade for these Hawaiian Chicken Skewers I shared a few weeks ago - see note 1 for how to REUSE the marinade for this recipe. This recipe also uses leftover Coconut Lime Cilantro/Coriander Rice that I shared as a side for the skewers.

1. The Hawaiian Chicken Skewers recipe uses the same marinade. So you can squeeze the chicken for this recipe in that marinade OR recycle the marinade as follows: marinade chicken for skewers for 1st 24 hours, then the chicken for this recipe for the next 24 hours. After which the marinade must be discarded immediately.2. The Coconut Lime Cilantro / Coriander Rice used as a side for the Hawaiian Chicken Skewers goes beautifully with this salad BUT if you don't have any leftover, just use plain cooked white rice and make extra dressing to pour over the rice.3. Nutrition is per serving, assuming 3 servings, with 1 cup of plain white rice used.
