Banana Pepper and Olive Salad

This recipe is in my cookbook on page 67.  I love the flavors of the banana peppers with the tomatoes and Italian dressing.  I hope you enjoy it. :)

½ cup grilled, sliced chicken breast
½ cup chopped olives
½ cup grape tomatoes

Italian Dressing
½ cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon vegetable or olive oil
2 tablespoons corn syrup
