I am at home today and fancied having a nice chicken salad for lunch. I posted a recipe a couple of days ago for a chicken salad I often have for lunch. Today I wanted to make it a little more interesting so whipped up a quick dressing from things in the fridge. I didn’t have the lemon to make my usual dressing so I threw one together from what I had and surprisingly it worked.
It needs to go with a strong salad with big flavours as it packed quite a punch itself. The fresh coriander cuts through the mustard well and the salad onions bring a sweetness to it.
Well my chicken is almost cooked so its nearly time to go and eat, but first the recipe.
2tsp French mustard
3tbsp olive oil
handful of fresh coriander
handful of fresh chives
3 salad onions.
finely chop the salad onions, coriander and chives and add to a mixing bowl. Spoon in the mustard and stir together. Finally add the oil a little at a time and whisk it well to combine. The oil may want to split with the mustard so give it a good hard whisking to bring it all together.
Serve with a nice chicken salad.
