Serving up summer

by Gazette Reporter

THE summer has been anything but sizzling, but this delicious Brazilian-style chicken salad, from M&S, which serves four, will be a Rio-l hit when you bring it out.
Inspired by salpicao, the classic Brazilian street food, it is often served with the chips mixed in, but you can serve them on the side if you prefer.

l 2 tsp olive oil
l 2 tsp smoked paprika
l 2 medium potatoes (about 700g)
l 1 green apple
l 1.5 limes
l 400g cooked chicken
l 50g raisins (optional)
l 4 tbsp mayonnaise
l 25g coriander
l 4 white seeded rolls

l Peel and cut all the potatoes into thin strips. Shred the cooked chicken and finely chop the coriander.
l Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7.
l Mix the oil with 1 tsp of smoked paprika, season with salt and pepper, then toss with the chips.
l Spread out on a large baking sheet and cook for 30 minutes. Allow to cool slightly.
l Meanwhile, quarter, core and slice the apple into thin wedges and put in a large bowl.
l Squeeze the juice of half a lime, then add the chicken and raisins.
l In another bowl, mix the mayonnaise with the zest and juice of one lime, 1sp smoked paprika and the coriander.
