This salad is almost like a potato salad, with some modification. It is great for a picnic or even for a side dish for a backyard BBQ. Makes a hearty meal, with lots of protein in it.

Ingredients:

1 chicken breast
4 hard boil eggs cut in small pieces
4 medium potatoes cooked
2 carrots
2 stalks celery finely chopped
20 black olives chopped
2 tablespoons relish
2/3 cup mayonnaise
4 tablespoon finely chopped parsley

Preparation:

Shred the chicken breast, after being cooked in water, salt, pepper and bay leaf.
Dice the carrot and boil for approximately 3 minutes, strain the water.
In a big bowl add all the ingredients above, mix gently and serve cold.
Make sure that all the ingredients are at room temperature before you mix them together.
If you like a little more “sweetness” on it, add some raisin on top of the salad, the combination of the flavor is just great. Make sure that you add just before serving, otherwise the dark color of the raisin will diffuse, darken the color of the salad.
