Question by ♥ ♥: Does anyone have a really really good original salad recipe?
We are trying to make a delicious salad for mothers day and my moms favorite food is a good salad with meat/chicken and something crunchy inside. Please make it original, not like a ceaser salad or anything and a good homemede dressing would really be great. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME!!

  3. Beet and Potato Chicken Salad

    4 chicken breast halves, boneless and skinless
    1 cup whole pickled beets, drained
    2 cups diced, cooked potatoes
    1 red onion, minced
    1/4 cup chopped dill pickle
    1/4 cup mayonnaise
    1/4 cup sour cream
    1 bunch watercress, washed and trimmed
    3 strips bacon, cooked and diced
    1/4 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped

    In medium saucepan, place chicken breasts and cover with cold water. Over medium-high heat, bring water to a simmer; cover and cook for 8 minutes, until chicken breasts are firm and opaque. Remove chicken from pan; cool.
    Dice beets and place in small bowl; set aside. Chop chicken into 1 inch chunks; place in large bowl. Stir in potatoes, beets, red onion, dill pickle, mayonnaise and sour cream.
    Line large serving platter or bowl with watercress. Add a large handful of lettuce in center. Top with chicken and potato salad. Toss together and drizzle with dressing. Sprinkle with bacon and walnuts.

    Makes 4 servings.

    And now for the dressing.

    Oriental Ginger Dressing

    2 tablespoons cider vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    1/2 cup pineapple juice

    Combine all ingredients in a jar. Cover and shake vigorously. Or combine using food processor. Chill or serve over green salad, chicken salad or pasta salad.

    I think the ginger and pinapple pair up beautifully with the beets and the soy sauce brings out the flavor of the chicken. However, if you want something more classy, try this one.

    1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
    1/4 cup sherry vinegar
    1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon finely chopped shallot
    1/2 teaspoons finely minced garlic
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

    In small bowl, whisk all ingredients together.
    Makes about 3/4 cup.

  6. I make something called Oriental chicken salad. It is cubed chicken, diced red peppers, bean sprouts, sliced water chestnuts, diced onions, a little cilantro, dill weed, coarse ground black pepper and seasoning salt. Mix these ingredients with mayonnaise and a little ranch dressing. We serve it with those Chicken in a Biscuit crackers.
