So healthy and easy to make, I wonder why I don’t have it atleast once a week! It’s as simple as using left over chicken or baking some chicken breast, cooling it, and adding it to a nice mixture of green leafy lettuce with chopped fresh vegetables.
I like to use tomatoes, onion, cucumbers, olives, and sometimes pine nuts or walnuts in my salad. If I’m feeling really creative, I will make my own salad dressings from Olive Oil, Vegetable Oil, or just a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch.
When I’m feeling really super creative, I might use a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch to cook my chicken in, along with using it as a salad dressing. I also add Avocado and sometimes sunflower seeds and croutons to my salads.
Another twist that can be made with the chicken salad is using Southwestern Flavoring, giving it a Spanish or Mexican taste. It’s best to mix this with Avocados, Salsa, and Sour Cream. Add a Tortilla and you almost have a mexican burrito. It’s great covered with crushed Tortilla Chips and cilantro.
A very simple and low cost meal where you can use Chicken, Beef, or Seafood and your choice of dressing.
