Chicken Salad Recipe
When making salads it doesn't require you to be a great cook. Well actually you don't even have to be able to cook at all. Salads only require a few "cooking" skills of your.
The first skill is that you need to be able to know hoe to clean and slice vegetables. It is important that you alway remember to clean your vegatables and salads in fresh clean water before you start making the salad.
These days a lot of the fruit and vegetables from the stores are covered with all kinds of chemicals and pollution so to try to avoid them before making your salad you'll have to clean them.
The second skill isn't really required but in order to make the salad look good you'll need to have some flair for colors and for which flavor goes with what.
It doesn't take long to make a uneatable salad by using the wrong combination of ingredients. So if you have invited quests for dinner be sure to taste what you have been making before they arrive.
The third skill has something to do with the color combination but also with how you arrange the salad. Remember that they eyes will eat too and you'll need to please them as well. It takes a little practice but you'll learn quickly.
