How to Make Chicken Potato Salad
I always involve my little ones every time I make salad. For example, my youngest daughter, Danielle, and myself had fun making Tuna Macaroni Salad. It also got her more interested in cooking.
You can make this salad with the kids and other members of the family. It is simple and easy.
I first boiled the vegetables followed by the chicken. I then made a salad dressing with Lady’s Choice Mayonnaise and tossed it with the cubed vegetables and chicken. I like it served chilled, so I place it in the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving.
Let me provide more details. There is a sequence involved when boiling the vegetables. Potato needs more time to tenderize, so I boil it 5 minutes ahead of the carrot. I then add the carrot with the potato on the same pot and continue boiling for 10 minutes.
After removing both veggies in the pot, let it cool down and slice into cubes. I also cook the peas on the same pot for 1 minute. Still using the same pot and remaining water, cook the chicken by boiling for 15 minutes. Remove from the pot and slice into cube once it cools down.
Make the salad dressing by placing Lady’s Choice Mayonnaise in a bowl. Add seasoning such as salt and ground black pepper. I also add sweet relish, shredded cheddar cheese, onion powder, and sugar. Mix everything together until well blended.
Combine cubed vegetables, chicken, and salad dressing in a large bowl. Gently toss. Chill inside the fridge before serving.
