This light chicken salad with rice, orange, and snow peas uses cider vinegar instead of mayo. It’s very refreshing with the fruit and a nice change from the usual potato or pasta salads.
You can change things up by substituting with the nut or seed of your choice (almonds, pecans, sunflower seeds) and also substitute the rice with wild rice, quinoa, or another grain.
In a bowl, whisk together oil and vinegar.
In a separate bowl, combine chicken, rice, pineapple, oranges, celery, peas, peanuts, raisins, cilantro, and parsley. Toss until well mixed, then add oil and vinegar mixture. Toss to coat and season with salt and pepper.
Cover and refrigerate for about 4 hours or until well chilled.
