Chicken Salad

Dressed with roasted red peppers, olive oil, mustard, and garlic instead of the usual bland mayonnaise, this chicken salad packs a punch. It's great made into a sandwich for lunch at the office. Or if bread isn't on your menu, serve the chicken salad on a bed of greens tossed with a little olive oil and sprinkled with salt.

Chicken Salad with Roasted Red Peppers

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon white wine or sherry vinegar
1/2 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus extra, if desired
1/2 roasted chicken, skinned, meat removed from the bone, and roughly chopped (about 1 1/2 cups meat)
1 stalk celery, chopped
3 tablespoons chopped roasted red bell peppers
1 tablespoon chopped chives
Coarse sea salt or kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Whole wheat bread or crusty white bread, for serving, optional
Mixed salad greens, for serving, optional

1. To make the vinaigrette, in a small bowl whisk together the mustard, vinegar, and garlic. Whisking constantly, slowly add the olive oil until fully incorporated.

2. In a medium bowl combine the chicken, celery, red peppers, and chives. Fold in the vinaigrette. Season with salt and black pepper and serve, either made into a sandwich or over salad greens tossed with a little more olive oil and sprinkled with salt.
