Recipe by DRAGNLAW
"Over the years I've finally developed this salad that is perfect for the Dragon. Very versatile, add your own favorite touches. A meal for company lunch or to take to work. There is no salt added other than what is in the mayo. Complete meal, serve on some lettuce leaves with extras of your choice...tomato, hearts of palm, cucumbers, olives, carrot sticks, cottage cheese, artichoke hearts, etc."

jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced

This is my recipe and I find the calorie count a little shocking. I've tried to research and so far I've come up with a TOTAL for the WHOLE recipe of only 663 calories. So how do they come up with 459 Calories per SERVING? I use only the chicken breast, no skin, a salad dressing of 40 cal per Tbsp, sweet relish has only 15 cal per Tbsp......?
I would also like to say ThankYou for your kind reviews. That is the minimum jalapeno I add, often it is a LOT more ;) . Today I used chopped pecans (pine nuts are expensive here too!) I think just about any nut meat would work.
Fixed as written and it was very good. I think I would add some of the juice from the jar of jalapeno peppers to add more heat. I also think that roasting the pine nuts would bring out the nutty flavor of the pine nut. As it was written, the pine nuts added a wonderful texture to the salad. Will definately fix again with these few tweaks!
Yummy! Great textures and flavor. I added an extra 1/2 jalepeno for an additional kick and served on lettuce leaves with tomato.
I liked this a lot--it's a spicy take on a chicken salad, and I liked the addition of the pine nuts. Didn't have celery, so I used yellow bell pepper for crunch. Even though I liked this, after tasting it, I felt it lacked something, so I added dried cranberries. That made it spicy, sweet, and savory all at once and kicked it up to where I wanted it. That's a personal preference, though--as a recipe, this is a neat take on chicken salad sandwiches. Thanks for the recipe!
This is tasty, not as spicy as I expected it to be. The pepper adds a nice kick, but isnt overpowering. Pine nuts are about $10 for a very small container in my area. I used sliced almonds since I had them on hand. Thanks for a nice recipe!
Great recipe for leftover chicken. Add a little of this and a touch of that to make it match your taste buds.
Just used jalapenos and no celery (Ilike it hot) delish
