Feeling guilty after all of that non stop, “you have got to try this”, holiday eating, I had a serious craving for a good salad today. The first one I thought of was this delicious, bursting with flavor, Mandarin Salad with Grilled Chicken. Actually, over the holiday, I made this refreshing Mandarin Salad with Grilled Chicken for a potluck luncheon. It was such a hit that they did everything but lick the bowl! Not only did it taste incredible, served in my pretty white salad bowl, the presentation was fantastic.
Everyone asked for the recipe and were totally stunned to know how easy it was to put together. Others missed out because it went so fast. This amazing salad is loaded with grilled chicken, chopped lettuce, mandarin oranges, celery, and sliced red onions, topped with thin sliced candied almonds, adding a little crunch. To finish, just pour the slightly sweet dressing over this great salad and toss to coat. You can easily make adjustments to suit your taste, or leave out the chicken and serve it as a side salad.
Taking it to my potluck luncheon worked really well as I packed everything separately and put it all together at serving time. I know you will enjoy this one as much as I have. Enjoy!
