This easy take on a sandwich sold by vendors along Rio de Janeiro’s beaches is packed with grated vegetables, sweet raisins, fresh lime juice, and cilantro. It’s like no chicken salad sandwich you’ve had before.
In another medium bowl, combine the oil with the remaining 1 Tbs. lime juice, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Mix in the carrots, beets, and cilantro.
Put a lettuce leaf on 4 of the bread slices, then top with the chicken salad, carrot mixture, another lettuce leaf, and another slice of bread.
Serve with Quinoa Salad with Avocado and Dried Fruit.

I followed the recipe exactly. I apdid add a little more salt based on previous reviews. My slaw was overpowering and mushy. After looking at the recipe picture again, I realized that even though the recipe said to grate the beets and carrots, they should have actually been thinly shredded. The chicken salad itself was fairly mild in flavor and probably,could have benefited from the add-ins that several people mentioned in their reviews.

This chicken salad is complex and delicious. I served just the salad, without bread, layering lettuce, then the chicken mixture, then the beet-and-carrot mixture in the middle--very pretty. Our guest asked for the recipe. My husband complained of the complex flavors, saying that he likes to be able to identify individual ingredients, but the next day he ate the leftover salad with relish.
Yes salywayn, the beets are raw, but when they're shredded in small pieces like this, they're tender enough to eat raw.
