Chicken Salad with Pea Shoots

Posted by Brette in Food

I recently found a source for pea shoots and now I’m finding lots of ways to use them. They are fantastic just on sandwiches. I wanted to find a way to have them for dinner though, so I can up with this fantastic (and easy!) chicken salad

1 poached chicken breast, cut into 1/2 inch pieces

1 small cucumber, peeled and sliced thin

1 small shallot, chopped

1 tbsp chopped parsley

10 thin slices of zucchini, chopped

1 tsp stone ground mustard

3 tbsp light mayo

salt and pepper

2 tsp good olive oil

1/2 tsp white vinegar

2 cups pea shoots

Mix the chicken and vegetables in a bowl. Add everything else except pea shoots and stir. Refrigerate. Cut the pea shoots into quarters, and toss. Place pea shoots on plate and top with 1/3 of the salad. (Serves 3)
