Chicken Rose Manna Salad

This is a healthy and light salad with a tang of citrusy blend great for the spring, summer and parties. If you need to bring a dish to share this is super easy! I know it is March but my dad was craving this salad so I quickly whipped it up for him. The salad shown in the picture is halfed but the normal recipe makes a huge bowl of salad. I dare you to make it 🙂 you’ll  love it.
