Jews love salads - egg salad, chicken salad, tuna salad, whitefish salad, salmon salad, Israeli salad. I could go on and on about salads like Bubba Gump yammers on about shrimp. Anyway, since I come from a long, not-so-distinguished line of Cape Cod Jews, I thought I'd post a recipe for Cape Cod Chicken Salad. By using shortcuts like a store bought rotisserie chicken, this salad is fast to prepare and loved by Jews and Gentiles the world over. Shalom!
Cape Cod Chicken Salad - serves 4
- 1 store bought (or home made) rotisserie chicken
- 1/2 cup scallions, diced
- 1/4 cup celery, diced
- 1/3 cup dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- 1 teaspoon of salt
Take your little chicky and remove the skin. Take off all of the good looking white meat and cut it into chunks. Proceed to eat the drumstick as a little mid-cooking snack. Now, back to the salad....dice up your scallions and celery and toss it into the bowl with the chicken. Add the cranberries and walnuts. In a separate little bowl, mix together the mayo, vinegar, honey, and salt. Add the dressing to the chicken mixture and stir until everything is incorporated. Now if this salad doesn't bring world peace, I don't know what will frankly.
