Southwestern Chopped Chicken Salad

Now that the kids are in school, I find that I'm busier than ever. There's homework, scouts, soccer, dance. Sometimes I feel like I just don't have time to get everything done, including making dinner. This meal is great because you can chop everything ahead of time and keep it in the fridge until you're ready to eat. Plus it's also a great way to get the kids to eat their veggies!
