Santa Rosa Chicken Salad

My sister made this while she was here and it was so good.  I wasn't sure if it was something my kids would go for since it had so much red and green in it.  Luckily they all gave it a thumbs up.

2 boxes of Uncle Ben's long grain wild rice -with seasoning
(if you are using a different brand it's 2 cups)
2 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
3 green onions, diced
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 1/2 cups of snap pees or snow pees, cut into bite sized pieces
1 avocado, cut into pieces
1/2 cup chopped pecans

  • Cook chicken and set aside.  Cook rice and add the seasoning packet.  If you are using plain wild rice, just don't worry about the seasoning.  
  • Let the rice cool while you chop the other ingredients.  After it is cool, add the green onions, bell pepper and snap pees.
  • Make the dressing by whisking all the ingredients together.
  • When ready to serve, poor the dressing over the rice mix and add the avocado and pecans.

Salad Dressing:

1/3 cup rice vinegar
1/3 cup olive oil
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tb dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
