About the Chicken & Rice Salad Recipe for Two

Great food recipes rely very often on a blend of different tastes and this recipe with wild rice and olives gives you plenty to chew on, so to speak.

It's not exactly an olive salad or tomato salad recipe, but these two ingredients add to the overall texture and nutritional value and flavor of the dish. And for those who want to get some good fats into their diets, adding some avocado slices to the top of the salad makes it extra yummy.

You can make this a chicken salad or a tuna salad recipe, depending upon the type of meat you have on hand. The original recipe calls for tuna, but it's a great way to use some of your leftover chicken. Be sure to use the white meat.

Because it's made with Minute Rice, you can also put it into your "easy recipes to cook" file under "recipes for salad" or "great food recipes." Either will do. You'll come back to it often, I predict.
