Southern Style Chicken Salad

I just got a new chicken cookbook that has some great recipes. The book is called Best of the Best: Chicken. Well there is this really yummy looking photo of a "salad" I want to try and thought I'd post. BEWARE there is no lettuce in this salad. There is a little green but not much.
Salad Ingredients:
  • 12 oz. cooked chicken breast
  • 1 can of black beans rinsed and drained
  • 1 (8 oz) can of water chestnuts diced
  • 1/2 of a red bell pepper diced
  • 1/2 of a green bell pepper diced
  • 1/4 of a red onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1/2 jalapeno minced (OPTIONAL)
Stir together all ingredients in a large bowl.

Dressing Ingredients:
  • 3 T. cider vinegar
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 2 T. orange juice
  • 1 t. cumin
  • 1/2 t. chili powder
  • 1/2 t. ground red pepper
  • 1/4 t. salt
Combine dressing ingredients in a small container with a tight fitting lid. Shake until all salt is dissolved.

Pour dressing over salad and toss.

Serve with tortillas... after all, I do live in Texas.

*I am going to add corn and diced avocado to the salad as well... OR... I will serve it with guacamole and ff sour cream on the side. *

Hope this recipe is as simple & tasty as it sounds.

Happy Cooking!
