Refreshing, delightful, light but satisfying, this Chicken Salad with Sea Buckthorn Dressing is a perfect way to enjoy your warm days!
This post originally appeared in May 2016. I have updated the pictures while the text remains the same. I have also edited the recipe by adding another way of making the dressing. This time, I used the second way with mango. Delish!
I know – you’ve been waiting for my lovely salads for a long time. And, finally, with these hot days, I am going to share with some fantastic spring/summer recipes. Let’s start with this elegant Chicken Salad with Sea Buckthorn Dressing.
Please forgive me for being a bit short of words today – I have a few things to share with you, but I do not have any strength to do that. Next time, ok?
There’s one thing I’d love to mention today. I am honored to have my recipe being included in a Buzzfeed Roundup featuring the dishes made with edible flowers. Indeed, last year I was incorporating edible flowers in many dishes. This year I
ordered asked my husband to grow more, more lovely edible flowers. While last summer we had only the pansies of two colors, pale yellow and dark blue, this time I anticipate much more colors (If Andrey does not screw the flowers:)
Let me remind you some ideas how to use edible flowers.
You see, dozens, dozens of options.
Yup, I didn’t decorate this Chicken Salad with Sea Buckthorn Dressing with flowers cause I need to give them some time to grow yet. But I will be doing this soon. A few words about this salad. It could have been called a Chicken Papaya Avocado Salad with Sea Buckthorn Dressing, but as you know, the Internet does not like such long names;) In fact, the combo of pan seared chicken, velvety avocado, and sweet and juicy papaya is simply amazing!
Besides, I had some frozen buckthorn berries, and I decided to incorporate them as well making this lovely and bright dressing. Sea buckthorns are delicious, yet with quite a specific flavor, berries packed with vitamins. They are actively used in medicine, for instance, as an anti-inflammatory treatment. If you find sea buckthorn oil – grab and use it for a massage!
If you aren’t familiar with these bright orange berries, well, you should give them a try. Or even better, make this lovely summer salad and drizzle it with this bright dressing!
In fact, have you ever tried sea buckthorn?
