Leftover Rotisserie Chicken Salad

Taste Testers

One of our favorite quick and easy suppers is a ready-to-eat rotisserie chicken from our local Piggly Wiggly grocery store.  We serve it with a few fresh vegetables for a delicious fun meal. Often this leaves us with some leftover chicken and we have found that creating this awesome salad the next day is a real treat. Use last night’s leftover rotisserie chicken for the main topping on this salad.

Quick and Easy Directions

  • Wash all of the fresh produce ingredients before prepping them.
  • Slice, dice and cut your veggies into bite size pieces.
  • Mix the red cabbage, spinach, leaf lettuce and kale in a large bowl.
  • Place a layer of the mixed greens on the bottom of your salad plate.
  • Next, add a layer of cauliflower. Notice how the white of the cauliflower contrasts against the green.
  • Layer and arrange your other ingredients.
  • Note: Substitute any of these ingredients for what you have in available.
  • The Chicken can also be substituted for leftover Thanksgiving Turkey.

Homemade Oil and Vinegar Dressing


Homemade Oil and Vinegar Dressing


  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil

We use a recycled plastic honey bottle to mix our Vinegar and Oil dressing. It makes a perfect container to pour the dressing evenly on the salad. If you don’t have a special bottle for your dressing you can mix it in a bowl and spoon it over your salad.
