Spicy Orange Chicken Salad

Here is the last recipe that my friend Lori made for us while visiting her family last weekend. This salad is very simple to make, only has a few ingredients, and tastes fantastic. I loved the heat from the dressing with the sweet oranges. The chicken made this salad hearty and filling and the celery gave it a great crunch. Thanks again for an incredible weekend and for cooking such wonderful and healthy meals Lori!!
