I love this recipe; it is very healthy and easy to make; you have all the goodness in one big bowl. You have your protein the chicken, you have your carbohydrates the macaroni. And you have your vegetables, tomatoes, pepper, black bean, lettuce and cilantro. I make my own dressing which is garlic, ginger, hot pepper, and sun dried tomatoes all crushed together then I add vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice and salt. I usually make a big bowl and there will always be left over, my children would eat it as a night snack or they take it for lunch the next day. I am not a macaroni person, but I love to eat this dish at any time.
