Mediterranean Chicken Salad with Fennel, Raisins & Pine Nuts

Scott Phillips

Yield: Yields about 1-2/3 cups

This salad is good as an appetizer served on toasted sliced baguette, or in sandwiches on ciabatta or baguette segments. It will serve two to three as a sandwich filling, but it can easily be doubled if you have more leftover chicken. You can substitute any leftover grilled or roasted chicken or a store-bought rotisserie bird.

Ingredients

For the dressing:

  • 1/2 small clove garlic, mashed to a paste with a pinch of kosher salt
  • 3 Tbs. mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice, more as needed
  • Pinch cayenne

For the salad:

  • 1 cup chopped or shredded leftover Butterflied Chicken Dijon¬†
  • 1/3 cup small-diced fresh fennel
  • 3 Tbs. chopped sweet onion, such as Vidalia
  • 2 Tbs. toasted pine nuts
  • 2 Tbs. golden raisins
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

    Absolutely delicious. I served as an open-faced sandwich on ciabatta bread w/ red lettuce.
