Ruhlman Brined Roast Chicken thing (which he posted last week) on Sunday and had a nice supply of the best ever cooked chicken on hand. I will be doing that a lot.
For additional heart healthy recipes, the Mayo Clinic has an extensive list, and also check out Robin Sue's round-up on her site after Friday.
Chicken Salad with Olives and Carambola1 cup cooked, chopped chicken
handful of torn romaine lettuce
handful of torn red leaf or Manoa lettuce
handful of watercress or arugula leaves
6 or 7 black olives, sliced in half
2 starfruit (carambolas), sliced and seeded
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup sliced cucumber
1/4 red onion, minced (optional)
Dressing1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice or vinegar (I used lemon juice and Balsamic vinegar)
1 bruised clove of garlic
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
Shake together in a jar and use about 3 tablespoons for your salad. The rest will keep nicely in the fridge for a week or so. I arranged the fruit on top after tossing the salad with dressing. Serve with fresh bread and a soup, if you have some really hungry guys. The salad and bread were enough for us.
