Chicken and Potato Salad

I know that until now everything that I have posted has been vegetarian.  The majority of the time my diet is vegetarian.  However, there are times I enjoy meat.  This salad is one of the ways I can do that.

This salad can be eaten hot, room temperature or cold.  It does not have mayo in it, so, it is a good recipe to have on hand for summer outings or picnics.  It is a yummy combo of chicken, oven roasted potatoes and veggies all in a dijon  vinaigrette.  Try it for yourself as is or change up the ratio or combo to suit yourself.  Just enjoy! 


Chicken and Potato Salad

3 medium size Russet Potatoes
1 whole Chicken Breast, cooked and cut into bite size pieces
1 Onion
6 ounces Sugar Snap Peas
1 Red Bell Pepper, diced
1/4 Cup White Wine Vinegar
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
2 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard 
2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
2 tsp. Fresh Minced Tarragon 
1 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Black Pepper

To make dressing; combine white wine vinegar, olive oil, mustard, lemon juice, tarragon, salt and pepper.  Whisk or shake till thoroughly mixed.

Blanch the sugar snap peas in boiling water for 2 minutes.  Drain and rinse with cold water to stop cooking.  Cut the peas in pieces on a diagonal.  

Scrub the potatoes (do not peel) and cut into 1/2 cubes.  Toss with enough olive oil to coat.  Place potatoes on a cookie sheet and roast on the bottom rack of a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes.  While potatoes are roasting cut onion into 8 wedges and separate pieces.  Toss onion with olive oil.  Remove potatoes and toss with a spatula.  Add onion to cookie sheet and return to oven for another 20 minutes or until potatoes are golden and cook through.  Remove from oven and place in a bowl.  Pour 1/3 of dressing over potatoes while still hot and toss to coat.

To assemble the salad add cooked diced chicken, snap peas and bell pepper to the potatoes.  Add the rest of the dressing.  Toss and serve it up.

As always make this recipe your own.  Let me know what you think.
