Spicy Chicken Salad with Honey Yoghurt dressing

This could quite possibly be my favourite Summer salad. Spicy Cajun marinated chicken served on a bed of salad leaves & crunchy croutons. The Glenilen natural yoghurt with honey and mustard has that hint of sweetness that brings everything together. The chicken can be served warm or cold in the salad, your choice!
