Spoon about ½ cup of chopped chicken into each jar. Gently pack the jars with the back of the spoon. Add orange pepper and spoon black beans into each jar.


Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 1/2 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar. I like a plain oil and fruity vinegarbut use your imaginationand have fun with it.

Shake jar lightly and pour into bowl and enjoy. This chopped salad would also be great served over your favorite greens or cold macaroni.
