Chipotle Chicken Salad

It's a little over a week into the new year, and I have been busy as ever on my days off trying out new recipes, testing out my new bread maker, and I can't wait to put my new pasta machine to use. This recipe is something new for me, and has been given the stamp of approval by myself and my boyfriend. The chipotle chiles give the dressing a smoky flavor, and all of the fresh vegetables keep this light and healthy, while still filling you up at the dinner table.
