Chicken Salad with Asparagus and Creamy Dill Dressing

This tasty salad is perfect for evenings when you're looking for a quick, no-fuss meal. We hand-pulled large pieces of chicken from a cooked chicken breast to achieve a chunky texture. Serve with crackers to complete the meal.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 salad)


  • 2 1/2 cups (2-inch) diagonally cut asparagus
  • 2 cups coarsely shredded cooked chicken breast (about 8 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced radishes
  • Creamy Dill Dressing
  • 8 tomato slices (about 1 large)
  • Freshly ground black pepper (optional)


1. Steam asparagus, covered, 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and plunge asparagus into ice water; drain.

2. Combine asparagus, chicken, radishes, and dressing in a large bowl; toss well. Arrange 2 tomato slices on each of 4 plates; top each serving with 1 cup chicken mixture. Sprinkle with pepper, if desired.
