It’s the last day of chopped salad week and since we had left over jerk chicken we are going to create a salad using  our left overs  and what we had in our cabinet. We all know that cooking can get expensive and wasteful if you aren’t smart about your meals and grocery list. So T.W.O. has the perfect Green Inspired Chopped Salad for you!
