Chef Jocelyn Notes

So a couple notes about this salad, you can always add your protein to this salad, either add a boiled egg and/or chicken breast.  The good thing about this salad dressing you can marinate the chicken in it for a minimum of 30 minutes no more than couple hours.  You can grilled, bake, or even bread it for a fried chicken.  This salad is very versatile you can also swap out the sweet potato for acorn squash and it also keeps it very seasonal.  Enjoy!
