Life is too short to eat boring food and that’s why I love this salad – it’s not average. As I said before, I love the combination of sweet and savory. Chicken and pineapple are rarely found together but surprisingly they make for a very harmonious marriage.
I got the idea for this dish from my grandfather’s wife. She made it for us when we visited Ukraine in 2007. I didn’t think to ask her for the recipe at the time so I came up with my own.
This salad is great by itself but can also be eaten on crostini or in a wrap.And yes, I know, I know! Another chicken recipe! Maybe I should start a chicken blog…hmm
(Obviously this picture is horrible, but you get the idea)
For 2 servings you’ll need:
1 boiled chicken breast, cubed
4 oz/about ¾ of a cup of pineapple, cubed
3 tbs. cilantro, chopped
2 tbs. finely chopped white onion
2 tbs. mayonnaise
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
Combine all the ingredients and it’s done!
