We like this one, have had others that we like better, but this one wasn't bad, just not as good. We'll keep this one in the recipe book for the future for sure. Definitely might try adding nuts for a little extra texture as others have suggested for next time.
Okay, so my kids didn't love it, but they all liked it enough to eat it... big plus! I loved it and will definitely make it again. It was very easy and quick and a great use of leftover rotisserie chicken.
I used craisins instead of raisins and used 1/4 cup instead of 2 T. I used twice as many greens (actually spinach, but a spring green mix would have been great if I had it on hand). I also made double the dressing and tossed it with the doubled amount of greens... still a light recipe. Thanks!
A great light dinner, the tarragon is a must. Would use sunflower seeds instead of the little sesame seeds. Served with focaccia.
This makes for a good, light dinner that is easy to throw together, and even tastes good after much less than an hour's chilling time. My only change has been to shred rather than chop the chicken breast, and while this creates more surface area the amount of dressing still seems adequate. The recipe is fine as-is, but I've also added goat cheese crumbles. The low calorie count leaves room for bread (home-baked soft pretzels!) and even a glass of wine.
Light and nutritious!
Love this. My husband did too. I made with ordinary iceberg lettuce. I also made extra dressing.
I have enjoyed this summer salad often for several years. It is almost a daily fare for me during strawberry season. I usually substitute fresh red grapes for the raisens (or sometimes dried cranberries), and always add either a few sliced almonds or chopped walnuts to the salad. Do gifve this a try - - it's wonderful!
Great weeknight dinner. Makes a very nice meal with the family. Really enjoyed the use of the sesame seeds.
