For summertime Shabbat lunches, a chilled chicken salad is just the thing.
I don’t have air conditioning. I live in Jerusalem, where it gets a little warm in the summer. And while I continue to cook and bake regardless of the searing heat, there’s one thing I really don’t want to do, and that’s leave on a hot plate over Shabbat, to heat food, and, consequently, my entire apartment. So I’m always on the lookout for main course dishes I can serve chilled. Enter this chicken salad! Chunks of juicy chicken, tossed with fresh vegetables and a tasty dressing, and with no mayonnaise in sight!
