Cooking Demonstration: Chicken and Fruit Salad

Today for our health center's event, I did a workshop on healthy eating and salad making demonstration. This recipes is taken from the Center for Disease Control Website. This website is great! They have a lot of really easy and healthy recipes. What I love about this site is that you can search recipes by certain ingredients. You can choose a few ingredients and see what kind of recipes they have for certain types of meal.
