European Chicken Salad

8:34 AM

Stop by your local Farmer’s Market for all of the ingredients for the salad.  It’s healthy, full of flavor and filling.  You won’t be hungry after a serving of this European salad.  The dressing is light, but is packed with zest that will satisfy.  I was very worried when I served this to the kids, but they loved the chicken.  They weren’t so sure about the olives and fennel though.
I would recommend offering this at your next tailgate or brunch, but not as the main dish.  It’s a great side salad.
I took a few shortcuts, but you don’t have to.  It’s very easy and quick!  A great seasonal dish from Parade.
