Chicken salad


Another recipe for a day when you don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen and still want to enjoy something tasty. There’s always some chicken or turkey leftovers (not only at Thanksgivings) so this will be the best way to use them.

Cut the chicken thin and mix it with mayonnaise, few shallots and pickles sliced very thin and some Sriracha sauce to add some kick. You can go crazy and add even more ingredients like: green/red pepper, hot peppers, olives, etc but I like it simple, fast and super-tasty. Enjoy.

Very simple recipe for the day-to-day lunch and dinner and for any special occasion.

Ingredients:

  • 5-6 boiled potatoes cut in small cubes
  • 3-4 boiled eggs cut in cubes
  • 1 medium size spanish onion cut Julienne and boiled for 2-3 min in 2/3 cup of vinegar and 1/3 cup of water; leave the pan on the countertop to cool down completely
  • 10-15 black or green olives cut rings
  • 2-3 pickled cucumbers cut in small cubes
  • 3-4 roasted red peppers cut in small cubes
  • 2 or more tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1-2 red hot peppers if you want some spiciness
  • salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

Put all the ingredients into a big bowl and mix them well but with care. The salad can be served immediately, but tastes better if left to rest overnight.
