Rotisserie Chicken Salad

This rotisserie chicken salad was made with a piece of supermarket deli chicken breast and leftover salad ingredients in the fridge since I have been making salads the whole week. The ease of putting this salad together and the fruity orange vinaigrette makes this salad perfect for the hot weather this month.

Salad Base & Toppings. With shredded rotisserie chicken chicken breast as the main protein, the rest is easy. As toppings, I used red cabbage, bell peppers, shallots and spring onions.

Salad dressing is a home-made herbed orange vinaigrette. This dressing is refreshing, light & citrusy with a savoury depth, which is great with the chicken. The recipe makes enough dressing just for the salad, but for meal prep, I made a batch of salad dressing to use on my salads the whole week, saving even more time to when making this quick salad.
