The original chicken breast salad will be appreciated by women. The thing is that instead of fatty mayonnaise, the dish is seasoned with low-calorie yogurt. Although the chicken breast is fried in a pan, only 1 tbsp. of vegetable oil is needed for this.
The salad actually turns out to be very light with an interesting slightly sweet aftertaste. It is perfectly set off by the slight sharpness that mustard gives. In general, you can talk about this salad endlessly, so it’s better to try it once.
And to make the salad even tastier and become one of your favorite dishes at the holiday, read the tips on how to cook it even better:
- If desired, chicken can simply be boiled, but then the finished dish will not be so spicy.
- In this recipe, it is not recommended to replace fresh cucumbers with pickles. They will absolutely not be combined with sweet tropical fruits.
- In combination with fresh cucumbers, the salad turns out to be very juicy, in which you can add ingredients that are brighter in taste. For example, such as corn. You can also use smoked chicken for salad. Then the salad will acquire a brighter taste and aroma.
- You can prepare a salad in a layered form – laying out each layer in turn and spreading with yogurt, or simply mix all the ingredients in a salad bowl. And you can present it in a portion serving. In any case, you will get a very tasty and satisfying salad that is eaten very quickly. As a dressing, you can use not only yogurt, but also sour cream.
- You can dress salad and mayonnaise. But in this case, it is better to cook it yourself – it will be much tastier and healthier.
- How to buy canned corn? Be sure to check the expiration date on the jar. If the container is glass, meticulously examine the grains. They must be the same size and color, whole and without spots. The composition should not contain dyes, preservatives and flavor enhancers.
- The salad will look beautiful and neat if you cut all the ingredients into pieces of the same size and shape (for example, cubes).
- You can decorate the salad with fresh tomatoes on top. Tomatoes choose juicy, but dense. Soft fruits do not hold their shape well; in the process of cutting and cooking, they will spread into a shapeless mass and spoil the appearance of the dish.
- Do not forget to sprinkle the salad with fresh herbs before serving – parsley, basil, dill. This will give the dish not only beauty, but also a unique aroma.
