Reaping the benefits of leftover Roast Chicken is the reward for the previous days efforts. My husband’s favorite way to polish off leftover chicken is in this salad. There are lots and lots of salad recipes using chicken and pasta. This one came from my cousin, Sherri, when I was a poor college student and would occasionally drop by her house to get away from the dorms, talk with her and her husband and play with their four great kids. My timing was always pretty perfect… dinner time! On one such occasion, she was making this salad. I left their home that day with a full tummy and a new recipe.
People seem to either be on #TeamMayo or #TeamSaladDressing. I am a loyal patron of Mrs. Clark’s Salad Dressing. My mom has used this for as long as I can remember (and nobody … NOBODY … messes with my mom’s potato salad)! With half the calories and half the fat of mayonnaise, it is what I prefer. Judging by the compliments I receive when people eat my salads and sandwiches, I’m not changing any time soon.
Whether you are feeding poor college students, packing lunches for yourself or other members of your family, or planning your next picnic, this recipe will serve you well. I will thank Sherri for you!
