I made this salad from a blog my friend contributes to called 24 hour menu. It was a very light and flavorful salad. It would be perfect in the Summer time.

2 chicken breasts grilled and sliced

sliced carrots
cucumber cubed
cherry tomatoes
sliced avocado
1 can drained and sliced hearts of palm, (can be found in specialty aisle and so delicious)
yellow peppers

**anything else that sounds good**

Toss all together and serve with creamy Caesar and balsamic vinaigrette. And of course fresh bread. Tonight's case was buttermilk biscuits and strawberry jam.
