Hi all– I really didn’t know what to call this salad we had for dinner– So I just picked out my 3 favorite ingredients and tossed them into the title. It does have a lot of other yummy things in there too, including a lime-cilantro dressing. Use a roasted chicken from the market and it’s dinner on the table in 20 minutes. Summer time dinner- easy, fast & fresh.
CHICKEN, HOMINY & AVOCADO SALAD
1/2 chicken from the market, already roasted*
6 cups of your favorite greens
14 oz. can yellow hominy**
1 avocado (or 2 if you love them as much as we do)
12 cup diced red bell pepper
14 cup radish, sliced thin
1/2 cup olive oil
1 large lime, juiced
a few shakes of salt
a few grinds of freshly ground pepper
1 tsp. sugar
3 tab. cilantro, chopped fine
Take the chicken off of the bone and chop it into nice little chunks>
Then on a pretty platter, layer the greens, chicken, hominy, avocado, red pepper and radishes.
Shake the dressing ingredients together in a container with a tight fitting lid until it is thoroughly blended.
Dress the salad just before you serve it- Happy summer eating!!
*We used the other half of the chicken for tacos the next night.
** If you don’t know hominy — It’s in the Mexican section of the market– like BIG kernels of corn that have a potato-ish edge to their flavor. I think it tastes nice & homey.
