Potato Salad with Chicken and Chipotle Dressing

Hello tasty! This salad hit the spot today at lunch. The smokiness of the chipotle dressing, the bite of the red onion, and the sweet taste of the carrots -it's a nice mix.

Potato Salad with Chicken

  • chicken, cooked 11 oz, 310 grams
  • red potatoes, small, cooked 1 lb, 870 grams

Chipotle Dressing

Ingredients

  • cider vinegar 1/2 cup, 92 grams
  • fresh oregano, chopped 2TB, 30 grams
  • chicken stock 6Tb, 64 grams
  • chipotle chiles, chopped 1, 15 mL
  • vegetable oil 1TB, 15 mL

makes 14, 1TB servings

Preparation

Pick up a roasted chicken from the market (or cook one yourself). Remove the meat from the bones and chop or shred, your choice.

Mix dressing ingredients and set aside.

We roasted the potatoes and carrots (more flavor than steaming). Coat with olive oil, salt if you like, and place on a baking sheet. Roast at 425 degree's for about 40 minutes; keep an eye on them after 30 minutes.

In a large bowl, add dressing over the chicken, potatoes, and carrots. Let this sit for about 1 hour, to allow flavors to blend.

Just before serving, add green onion, avocado and romaine. Toss and then plate with whole romaine leaves and red onion.
