Left over roast chicken is ideal for this delicious, quick salad with slices of fried pumpkin and a tangy raspberry dressing, a perfect addition to your summer table.
- Fresh berries are always best, but out of season, frozen are a perfect addition and come in handy for baking, smoothies and cooking.
- A perfect salad that uses up your left over roast chicken, this will also work with sliced roast lamb or turkey, even ham would be perfect
- Strawberries and blueberries make a delicious tang to the salad as well as added some wonderful colour and health benefits.
Vinaigrette is basically a salad dressing usually with equal parts of oil and vinegar, although you can make many substitutions and flavours using herbs, mustards, different oils and vinegars
A Vinaigrette is a great way of bringing spices, herbs and fruits into your salads, poured over steamed vegetables or used for marinating before barbecuing.
When shredding your roast chicken, be sure to cover it well in the fridge and eat it within three days after purchase or alternately wrap it in plastic and freeze it making it a hand and quick healthy protein addition to soups, pasta and salads.
