Today is salad day for diabetics. Although I think just about any salad is good for diabetics, except of course the ones that have tons of sugar, or fat and sodium. This one has mandarins in it. If you dont want chicken you could put 1/4 cup of almond slivers in it. A little crunch is good. The nutrition facts would change too. It's good just the way it is though. Well have a good day.
