Chicken & Baby Kale Salad w/ Artichoke Heart Dressing

This is a very tasty lunch or dinner salad with baby kale and romaine lettuce and a myriad of  tastes and textures from the whole sugar snap peas, sliced almonds, crunchy carrots, savory succulent chicken a bit of heat from the Fresno chilies and one of my favorite and easiest to prepare creations: Creamy Artichoke Heart Salad Dressing. This dressing works well with any salad but is especially nice with this combination. This dish is high in fiber, heart-healthy and diabetic friendly and very nutritious.
