Chicken Celery Salad


I’m going to make chicken and celery salad. Fun thing about making salad is that you can do so many different combinations. This time, I’ve chopped plenty of celery, some cooked chicken, cucumber, tomatoe, green onion, corn and coriander, or as it is called in America, cilantro.


Coriander is probably one of the first herbs to be used by mankind, perhaps going back as far back as 5000 BC. It is mentioned in early Sanskrit writings dating from about 1500 BC. Then the Romans spread it throughout Europe, and it was one of the first spices to arrive in America. As many of you might agree, corianders goes great with lemons or lime, so I chipped some lime zests and mix all vegetables in one big bowl.


Once everything is mixed, I put some yogurt, sour cream and little bit of mayonnaise. One thing I try to do is that by adding yogurt, you add so much more nutrition into your salad: mainly protein, calcium and vitamin C. Moreover, it makes the salad more fulfilling so it’s killing two birds with one stone. You can increase or decrease the amount of yogurt, sour cream and mayonnaise to your preference but I prefer more yogurt and less sour cream and mayonnaise.


Finally, add lime juice and season it with salt and pepper. Stir well and it will be ready to be served after about 15 minutes of refrigeration.
