I imagine this would be a great salad in the summer but I decided to have it last night. Why? Because I was throwing together a fattening meal for everyone else at my daughters little birthday party. Yup, cake too. You know it was great anyway, even if it was a little chilly.
The picture doesn't show how heaping my plate was. I placed the salad on a bed of iceburg (I like very kind of lettuce there is). So with all the veggies already in it, that plate was heaping, heaping I tell yah! The recipe below is modified for one. Click on the link and you will find servings for more.
MOROCCAN CHICKEN SALAD
recipe source can be found here
3/4 cup rice, cooked
4 oz diced cooked chicken
5 kalamata olives
1 tablespoon olive oil
juice of half of a lemon
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1 cup shredded carrot
(I wished I had cilantro or mint to throw in as well)
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Pour over a bed of greens.
I imagine you can even make this a heated dish as well. If I make it again while it is cold I will warm it.
I think a tablespoon of raisins in it would be real good as well.
