Sweet Cabbage Crunch Chicken Salad

The beautiful purple cabbage adds nutrient density to this salad and the chicken adds a punch of protein. My kids love this one because of the combination of sweet and tangy flavors. I love it because, not only is it loaded with healthy ingredients, but it also holds up really well and tastes great the next day!
