When this happens to me, I surfed my frig and pantry to see
what I can come up with.
I decided to take the fruit and cheese from the frig and
created a fruit and cheese platter.I
simply added a thread of olive oil on the mozzarella cheese and placed fruit
around it on a plate. It took only a few minutes to assemble this recipe.
Chicken and Apple Salad
I purchase a rotisserie chicken every week and make many
dishes without having to take the time to bake the chicken myself.I decided to make Chicken salad, so I cut up the rotisserie chicken into small cubes
and I added toasted pecans, 1 apple with skin removed and cubed, shredded
carrots and broccoli from a bag, a handful of golden raisins, and 2 spring
onions. I took some mayo from the frig, added some freshly squeezed lemon juice
and paprika and mixed it well with the chicken salad.I placed the chicken salad over a bed of baby
arugula, andfrisée lettuce. I added some sliced cucumbers, baby yellow
peppers, tomatoes, grain salad on each corner of the plate. For the salad dressing,
I simply poured a few treads of unfiltered extra virgin olive oil and threads
of pear flavored balsamic vinegar of the greens.The chicken salad recipe took about 10
minutes to make from ingredients I already had in my frig and pantry.
Rotisserie Chicken Salad
I love it when I can come up with tasty dishes that do not
require much time at all and are also healthful to eat.
