Chicken Salad

This is my favorite dish for this time of the year. A dish that is equally healthy and tasty because it is made from fresh vegetables.
There are many variations of this dish that gives you the possibility to combine your favorite vegetables. As the basis of the salad I use young cabbage, I combine other vegetables in accordance with the wishes of my family. As for the meat that I use with this salad, it's usually chicken breasts but you can also use the boneless chicken drumsticks. However, you can customize it to your wishes. I will offer you one of the options for the preparation of the chicken salad.

Ingredients :

  • 500g of chicken breasts
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 small head of cabbage
  • 3 larger carrots
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 green apple
  • 1 red onion
  • 250g of fresh cheese or mozzarella
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of pepper

Dressing :

  • 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons of sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon of horseradish
  • 1 teaspoon of mustard
  • 1 teaspoon of grated fresh ginger
  • Lemon juice
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of pepper

Preparation :

In a saucepan over low heat, heat the olive oil and add the chicken breasts chopped into cubes. Lightly fry to get a nice golden color, add the salt and pepper. When the chicken is ready, remove from heat and leave to cool slightly. During this time, you can start preparing vegetables. Clean and wash all the vegetables properly.
Grate the cabbage and carrots in a larger bowl, add salt and gently mix. Then, tomatoes, cucumbers, apple, and onion chop into cubes, add the cabbage and carrots, and again gently mix. Add the chilled chicken breast to the vegetables and even out gently. Salad dressing is prepared as you add all of these ingredients, well mix and pour over the vegetables and chicken breast. Add lemon juice gradually until you get the desired acidity. When you add the dressing and gently even out leave for a half an hour to stand for the flavors to infuse. You and cool it for a few hours and serve as a cold appetizer. In any case, it's very tasty. Finally, add cheese or mozzarella, and you can serve this spring dish.

Tip :

For a healthier version of this salad instead of mayonnaise you can use low-fat yogurt, achieve the same flavor, but it's much healthier. So instead of a tablespoon of mayonnaise, you can put half a cup of low-fat yogurt and you will be amazed at the taste.
