Main dish summer salad: Oriental Chicken Salad
Oriental Chicken Salad was one of the first few recipes we added to this website 5 (!!!) years ago. My friend Sheri served it for lunch one day when I was visiting her, and it was so perfectly delicious I asked for her recipe. I then made it for Joshua, my parents, and my siblings, who all love this salad now!
Time for some updated pictures: pictures that might actually entice you to make this salad. ;) It is supposed to have sliced almonds and some red cabbage but we made it without. Less color, but still very tasty! My mom, sisters, and I made the salad pictured when I was in Ohio last month.
The bonus? Oriental Chicken Salad can be served with hot chicken on top for a main-dish dinner salad. Then, refrigerate the leftover salad fixings and cooked chicken and use for a cold lunch salad. It's great both ways, and having a portable hearty lunch salad is so handy!
I still have a few more things to post from my time in Ohio. I'm having trouble getting motivated! Help me out by letting me know what you'd like to read about, asking me a question, or if you even care what I blog about! :)
