Salpicão de frango
(Cold Chicken Salad)

This is a great favorite of Brazilians as a summer salad; great for picnics, it's almost a meal in itself...The recipe comes from Tatyana Berger in Miami. Thank you, Tatyana!

2 or 3 cooked chicken breasts, shredded

2 slices of ham, chopped

1/2 cup of fresh parsley, chopped

1 can of hearts of palms, chopped

1/2 can of corn

1/2 can of peas

1 apple, chopped

1 small onion, finely chopped

1 green pepper, chopped (you can omit it, if you can't eat green peppers for any reason)

1 carrot, shredded

1/4 cup of green olives

1/2 cup of raisins

2 Tbps of mayonnaise (sprinkle with garlic salt before adding the mayo)

Mix it all together and put it in the fridge until you're ready to serve. If mangoes are in season, add one chopped mango. In Brazil, people like to sprinkle this salad with matchstick potato chips right before it goes to the table.
