Summer has arrived with a vengeance! Hot and humid, but nothing is
better than a cool summer chicken salad on the veranda.
Everyone has their secret chicken salad recipe..but I don't. Most poach chicken and then cool, but I always used left over roasted chicken. The flavor is so much better. If no leftover...I will roast a chicken and use the next day. Cooks Illustrated highly recommend that you never use warm chicken since it soaks up too much of the dressing and you need to add more.
Today's leftover chicken included chopped onion and celery with Kraft Mayo to bind. I added salt and pepper, to taste. To finish the plate, chilled broccoli, cucumber, tomato asparagus all topped with honey roasted sunflower seeds. A nice slice of cheddar to enjoy with a chilled glass of rosé.
Bon Appétit and Enjoy
