Chicken and Broccoli Salad

  • Easy

About This Recipe

Main dish salads are so wonderful in the summer. You keep them in the fridge, and whenever anyone is hungry, they can just dish up a plate. There is no end to the combination of foods, textures, and flavors in these recipes. Just make sure that the foods you choose are fresh and delicious and of best quality. Then have fun playing with the foods your family likes best.

This recipe for Chicken and Broccoli salad is a classic. I always like to use rotisserie chickens from the grocery store whenever I need cooked cubed chicken, but you can certainly cook your own chicken. Use leftover chicken after you have grilled some for another meal. Cook chicken breasts or a whole chicken, cool it, then cube the meat.

You could add sliced celery to this salad, or some sliced yellow summer squash, zucchini, grape tomatoes, green beans, or asparagus. That’s the nice thing about salads – they are so accommodating!
