My friend Jill makes some wonderful salads, and she was kind enough to share three of her favorite summer salad recipes with me.
Last week we made her Layered Caribbean Chicken Salad and have deemed it a favorite here at our house too! It is a healthy, flavorful, and filling salad. Even my salad skeptic enjoyed it. The girls and I liked it so much that we made a scaled down version (no layers, a few missing ingredients, but with the yummy dressing) for lunch a few days later. Oh, this one is a keeper!
* I had difficulty finding Caribbean jerk seasoning mix. I looked in Walmart, then in a larger grocery store in a nearby town, with no luck. So we made our own seasoning mix using the recipe found ~here~. Of course, the next time I went to Walmart, there it was on. the. shelf. They must have restocked it. At least that's what I'm telling myself because I don't want to believe that I spent all that time looking for it the previous week if it was there all the time. Surely they had restocked.
Do you like the look of layered salads? Do you think that food attractively presented somehow tastes better?
