Chicken, Cheese, and Arugula Salad

Chicken, Cheese, and Arugula SaladThis salad is delicious and takes minimal time to make.  If you aren’t an arugula person (I’ve just started liking it)  you can easily sub out the arugula for spinach or another leafy green.  The dressing is also delicious on any mixed veggie recipe!
