Brazilian chicken salad (salpicao) is quickly made with shredded chicken, apples, carrots, raisins, mayo, and lime juice and served chilled topped with shoestring potatoes.
What a crazy week! Both my daughters will be finishing their classes by Friday. My eldest will be graduating from kindergarden while the other will be finishing preschool. Salpicão (Brazilian Chicken Salad) looked like a great meal for such a busy and hot day.
On top of all the things that I normally have to do, I have also been working harder to prepare all the posts not only for this week but also for the next one. Yep! We will be spending more time in family… How I do love that!
The twenty-four hours in a day seem not to be enough to accomplish everything that I need to get done. Truly, I am exhausted and running a little behind. This day in particular, passed by so quickly that before I even realized it, it was already almost time to serve dinner.
“What can I make?”, I thought.
“Salpicão (Brazilian-style Chicken Salad), of course!” It is quick, nutritious, delicious, and refreshing at the same time. Ideal for the high temperatures here in Texas.
“OK, but why not use this traditional Brazilian salad to make sandwiches?”, I asked myself. That way I would not have to prepare any other dishes to serve along with it — as on the other hand we would traditionally be required to do in Brazil.
So I baked french bread rolls, let them cool down, and filled them with the salad. Oh, yum!
Dinner was ready to be served in just a snap. This was one of those ideas that made everyone happy — especially myself! It was indeed a perfect fix…
I hope that you enjoy this Brazilian chicken salad recipe as much as I do.
