Salad usually means a bland dish with no spices, but I know a salad is packed with flavor. It’s the salad I make very often when I crave for something masaladar but want to avoid calories.
I still remember the taste when I tried this creamy salad for the first time. Just when I put this salad in my mouth, I was bursting with masala flavor, so my first reaction was I want the recipe to make at home.
Then I collected the recipe and tried to make it at home. Oh, I just didn’t yet reveal what salad is it. It’s the popular fresh market chicken salad recipe.
This salad includes protein-enriched chicken breast, crunchy celery, a few more veggies, mustard flavor, heavy cream, and so on. Chop, mix, and serve; only a 10-minute recipe. And the result is a creamy and flavory chicken salad.
Let’s know the step-by-step guide and make this salad at home.
Tips and Tricks
- If you don’t have leftover chicken, just put a chicken breast in boiled water, add seasoning, and simmer for a few minutes until the chicken is thoroughly cooked.
- Add or remove any veggies as per your liking, or you can also use fruits. There is no restriction, which will increase the taste as well as make the salad more nutritious.
- Give your full attendance to the creamy dressing. It heats everything up and gives the salad its perfect flavor profile. No replacing or avoiding any ingredients of the sauce.
- If you are planning to serve the salad later, then avoid mixing the seasonings, and mix just before you serve.
