Chicken & Brown Rice Salad with Honey Soy Dressing

This salad is easy to whip together, yet so incredibly tasty and nutritious!

Your body will be nourished from the protein from the chicken, the complex carbohydrates from the brown rice, and the vitamins and antioxidants from the fruit and vegetables.

Your taste buds will certainly enjoy the complex flavors from the simple dressing and the sweet crunch of the fresh vegetables!

We made this salad with the kids at Capitol Heights Academy and every one of them gobbled it up with gusto! It is a fun recipe to make with the whole family!
