A Cold Supper

ED1464A4-9881-4040-80D0-A8124A144844Today was another busy day so since it was 30 degrees we decided to have a cold supper. Summer is always a good time to not cook just make. I had leftover bbqed chicken in the fridge so my wife wanted chicken salad. I liked the idea because the last time I had chicken salad was in a sandwich about 30 years ago. It isn’t that I don’t like it it’s I just don’t make it. Sandwiches didn’t seem like a good idea but served on lots of lettuce did. It was a great meal and something different for supper. So it was cooking it was just making, that for me is also a lot of fun. This is a little different chicken salad because it is something that really doesn’t have rules, just put in what you like. The radishes was because I just like eating them, 3 made it in the recipe 3 I ate. You could use this for a sandwich or in a wrap. Two parts to this first the salad dressing and then the chicken and everything else

1/3 cup mayonnaise

2 teaspoons white wine vinegar

1 teaspoon grainy mustard

1/2 teaspoons horseradish

Mix everything in a small bowl and retain

3 cups diced leftover chicken

1 large rib celery chopped

3 green onions chopped

1 dill pickle finely diced

3 radishes cut in half and sliced

1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper

Chopped lettuce tossed with a little olive oil and lemon juice

Mix chicken, celery, green onion, dill pickle, radish, salt and pepper together in a bowl. Add the dressing and mix extremely well, refrigerate for about 3 hours. Serve on a bed of chopped lettuce.

  1. Sounds great for a hot day.

  2. Very nice. I sometimes forget that healthy food can also be good food!

    • Yes I thought about it being a healthy meal as I was eating it. Made it just to have something different for a cold summer meal. It was surprising how much I enjoyed it. Will definitely make it again. Glad you liked it Bob.
