Chicken Salad with Cumin and Parsley

  • SERVINGS: 4
  • BASIC-EASY
  • FAST

All of our chicken salads make great quick dinners, atop a bed of lettuce as here or inside a sandwich. If you don't have any leftover cooked chicken and don*'t have time to cook, store-bought rotisserie chicken is just the thing.

  1. 1 1/2 tablespoons grated onion
  2. 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  3. 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  4. 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  5. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  6. 1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
  7. 3 cups diced cooked chicken
  8. 1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh parsley
  9. 2 cups shredded lettuce, such as leaf lettuce or romaine
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the onion, mayonnaise, yogurt, cumin, salt, and pepper. Stir in the chicken and parsley and toss to combine.
  2. Put the lettuce on plates. Top with the chicken salad.

Suggested Pairing

A Sauvignon Blanc from California, riper and with more melon and fig flavors than those from France, is what you want for a tasty match. A touch of oakiness helps, too. Wines labeled Fumé Blanc are more likely to be made in this style than those simply called Sauvignon Blanc.
