This salad is packed with surprising flavors for a healthy and satisfying meal. Carrots and potatoes are boiled until tender, adding a nice dose of vegetables to the dish. Cooked chicken and onions are quickly pickled in a mixture of vinegar and oregano, adding a ton of flavor and bitterness to the salad. A bed of delicate and crisp lettuce is the perfect bed for the pickled chicken mixture and the cooked vegetables. Adding a bit of creamy avocado adds a nice dose of healthy fats.

Ingredients

  • 1 potato (medium, cubed)
  • 1 carrot (medium, peeled and sliced)
  • salt
  • 1 chicken breast (cooked and shredded)
  • 2 tablespoons onion (minced)
  • 1/2 chile pepper (chipotle, minced)
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano (ground)
  • lettuce leaves
  • avocado (pitted and sliced or cubed)

Directions

  1. Add the potatoes and carrots to a pot filled with cold water. Add a pinch of salt and bring to a boil on medium-high heat. Cook until softened, for about 5 minutes.
  2. Drain the vegetables and place them in cold water for 5 minutes. Drain the vegetables again and place them in a bowl.
  3. Add the chicken, onion, and chile pepper into the bowl. Add the vinegar, oregano, and a pinch of salt and mix everything well.

At first I thought this one sounded a little off. I have never heard of pickled chicken salad. However, my husband eats everything pickled so I decided to give it a chance. Wow, I am so glad I made this. Don’t let the pickle part get you. The pickle enhances the flavors, and it is just perfect.
