An excellent salad which can serve as a meal by itself on a hot summery day, or as a starter in a party, as tupperware food or even as a sandwich filling. This salad which i made with the ingredients found in my fridge can be also taken up a notch by adding fancy ingredients such as smoked salmon, caviar, crab meat etc. etc. It all boils down to adapting a recipe to your own tastebuds. Ofcourse it can be made purely vegetarian also!!
I wil teach you the salad i made and then you can just adjust the ingredients to the tastebuds of your family. I also want to add i did not add too much mayonnaise to the dressing as i dont like my salads coated in it… so you are free to add more if you wish 🙂
So….here you can try my excellent tropical chicken salad 🙂
200 grams of chicken breast sliced , grilled and chopped into strips
1/2 cup each of chopped cabbage, lettuce, cucumber
1/4 cup each of chopped onions and red capsicum
a little bit of chopped celery
1/4 cup each of chopped pineapple and apple
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1 tablespoon or more of dijon mustard
1 or 2 tablespoons of honey as you like
a little hot sauce if you like it spicy…i do!!
mix all the ingredients for the salad in a big bowl. Mix the ingrediens for the dressing together. Add the dressing into the salad and toss well. Serve it on a cabbage leaf or in individual glass bowls. What i did was decorate it with some chicken strips and cubed pineapple.
INGREDIENTS YOU CAN ADD TO THIS:
corn, palm hearts, canned lychees, crab meat, ham, chopped nuts and cubed cheese…this is just an idea 🙂
