Hello there. We are still roasting here in Southern California!! Yesterday we hit 109 and today 108. Ugh!!! Way too hot to think about cooking! But my daughter Gennifer told me about this salad that someone made at her work. She made it for her family yesterday and when she was telling me about it, I was drooling, it sounded so good. I knew I had everything to make it except a rotisserie chicken. So today I ran in to Sam's Club and got one so I could make this yummy salad for dinner. I used all of the ingredients she used, only I added romaine lettuce, bowtie pasta, and red pepper, and parmesan cheese and roasted sunflower seeds.
I didn't think to take pictures until I had gotten everything chopped up. But here is what Gennifer said she used.
1 cucumber, peeled and diced
diced celery ( I used three ribs)
diced apple ( I used one large Gala )
red seedless grapes ( 1 1/2 cups or so, cut in half )
I also added one diced red pepper
The way her friends made it, they tossed all of these ingredients, then added the chicken, and tossed in Tapatio. That did not sound good to me. But then, I am not a fan of hot things. But she said it was very good. Here I have added the cooked and cooled pasta to the chopped veggies and fruits.
I chopped up a head of Romaine lettuce, and threw in a handful of shredded parmesan cheese. A handful of roasted sunflower seeds. Fresh ground salt and pepper.
