Cilantro Chicken Salad

So, I think you all realize how much I love coconut.  So, now it's time to move to my other favorite in life; Cilantro.  Cilantro is one of those love it or hate it foods. If you love it though, this chicken salad is a must-try. It's full of flavor, low on mayo, and goes together really quickly.
