Friday – Tour d’ America – Pittsburgh Maurice Salad

Chef style salad with a creamy tang.

Chef style salad with a creamy tang.

Simple chicken and ham elevated by a zesty dressing makes this Pittsburgh staple a great addition to your next salad bar night.  The days of watching yellow slivers of goodness tumble to the bottom of the bowl come to an end by adding the chopped egg to the dressing.

Ingredients

Ingredients for the salad and dressing

Chicken

saute chicken with salt and pepper.

Add-ins

Dice ham, tomato and mince egg.

Dressing

Mix dressing and fold in minced egg.

Lessons Learned

Swiss is too mild a cheese to stand up to the smoked ham and pepper jelly.  Next time I would either leave it off or go with a smoked cheese… or I might just be starting a smoked Gouda phase?

Leftover lemon pepper or BBQ chicken would work just as well.

Tomatoes are not in season yet and a nice ripe small local grown (picked ripe not green) would be a great contrast to the tang of the dressing.
