4 boneless chicken breasts, cooked and then chopped or shredded.
Half a cup of finely minced onion.
Half a cup of finely minced celery.
Salt, to your liking.
Ground black pepper (as desired).
1/2 to 1 cup dried cranberries.
One cup of mayonnaise.
Half a cup of granulated sugar.
1/4 cup vinegar.
One tsp prepared mustard.
One tsp salt (adjust to your taste).
1/4 tsp of freshly ground black pepper.
To start, in a spacious mixing bowl, mix together the cooked chicken, finely minced onion, and finely chopped celery, then season with the desired amount of salt and freshly ground black pepper.
After that, in a distinct bowl, vigorously whisk together all the dressing components until you achieve a smooth and thoroughly blended mixture.
In this step, drizzle the dressing over the chicken mixture and gently toss until it’s evenly coated.
Next, to add a pop of color and a touch of sweetness, gently incorporate the dried cranberries into the mixture just before serving. This step will maintain the salad’s vibrant appearance.
Finally, present the salad either on a bed of crisp lettuce or alongside some crunchy crackers for a delightful serving.
– Ensure your chicken is cooked but not overdone to keep it tender and juicy.
– Mix the ingredients gently to maintain the salad’s texture.
– Consider adding fresh herbs like parsley, dill, or chives for extra flavor.
– Add a hint of curry powder for a unique twist.
– Enhance the savory aspect with crispy bacon bits.
– Include diced avocado for a creamy texture.
Have a nice day!!
