Chicken and Vegetable Stir fry (or Salad) with Cilantro Cheese Salsa

Thinking back to those first days of going gluten free, long before gluten free bread was readily available in grocery stores, I tried to replicate my gluten filled lunch by spreading peanut butter and jam on plain rice cakes. I usually ended up throwing them out and eating nachos.

I’m not sure when I figured out that if I made a little extra, I could have leftovers for lunch, but I’m so glad I did.

This dish is almost a reheat and serve dish (though it’s fantastic cold as a salad). It’s yesterday’s Grilled Chicken and Vegetables reheated in a skillet (or not) and topped with a very simple dressing. This makes enough for a large spoonful each. If you like things really saucy, double the recipe.
