Rhode Island Chicken Salad with Broccoli

We love the Ratty's Rhode Island Chicken Salad because it has juicy grapes, crisp fresh apples, plump raisins, large chunks of chicken and creamy mayo. One way to stretch the flavor of chicken salad is to include steamed broccoli florets and sliced mushrooms, and to serve it with crisp lettuce and tomato slices.

Rhode Island Chicken Salad with Broccoli
a small handful of raw broccoli and mushrooms
1 serving of Rhode Island Chicken Salad
1 leaf of fresh lettuce
2 slices tomato

1. Place broccoli and mushrooms in a small bowl, cover with a plate, and steam on high power in the microwave for 1-2 minutes or until veggies are just cooked.
2. Carefully remove the plate and add the steamed veggies to the chicken salad, mixing to distribute evenly.
3. Serve with lettuce and tomato.
