Method

  • Boil the chicken with water, salt, pepper, bay leaf and some coriander until cooked. These ingredients will give more flavour to the chicken and you can use the stock later for other recipes.
  • Shred the cooked chicken , add it to the large mixing bowl and add the chopped veggies, apricots, olives, dill and feta cheese. Add salt and cracked peppercorns to the taste. Mix gently.

For the dressing:

  • In a bowl, whisk all of the dressing ingredients together to blend and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add the dressing to the salad and mix well.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Serve over bread, rolls, wraps or even on lettuce.

Note: For a vegetarian version of this, just exclude the chicken.
