VEGETABLE CHICKEN SALAD-

I was at a wedding a few weeks ago in Kentucky and they had a similar recipe to this and I was skeptical to try it. But, when I did I was amazed, like so happy I did. The salad was PHENOMENAL! So, as soon as I got home I had to recreate it. All the vegetables work so well together. It’s such a great and simples chicken salad recipe.  You can make the salad and refrigerate it for a couple days enjoying when desired.

HOW TO MAKE VEGETABLE CHICKEN SALAD-

This Russian vegetable chicken salad is easy to make and most of all, it doesn’t go bad the same day you make it.

You want to evenly julienne your vegetables and chicken, so they are all about the same (with the chicken slightly larger), making sure they are bite-sized pieces. If you a kick to your salad, you can even add some finely chopped jalapeno pepper when sauteeing.

SAUTEED VEGETABLE CHICKEN SALAD-

I love the addition of chicken to the salad. It adds some protein to this salad. If you don’t like a lot of chicken, you can add a little less than the indicated amount.

For this Russian vegetable chicken salad, you need to sauté all the ingredients. The oil used for the sauteeing works as the dressing for the salad. You then just combine everything and season with salt and pepper, to taste. You have yourself a pretty spectacular salad.

What oil should I use?

You can use your favorite oil to saute and cook the ingredients. Olive oil, grape seed oil, walnut oil, or avocado oil will all work great! (Canola oil is fine too, if that’s all you have.)
