The salad with almonds and chicken according to this recipe requires a long marinating (not less than an hour, but, in principle, the longer the better), but by itself it cooks very quickly. On weekdays, chicken can be marinated in the morning, and a salad can be made and eaten after work.
For my taste, smoked chicken is the best for this salad. Further - in decreasing order - grilled chicken breasts and just boiled or fried chicken that remains. Chicken, almonds, garlic, tomatoes, and tomato juice are the main ingredients. Everything else is variable. You can also take cucumbers, sweet peppers, fried eggplants and lettuce leaves, you can play with different varieties and methods of cutting cheese. You can use any almonds - even whole nuts, even crushed ones, even flour. But if you have at least a few petals, then it is better to set aside some of them to sprinkle with them on the salad before serving. Firstly, it is beautiful, and secondly, they crunch deliciously.
Thanks to the garlic, the taste of the salad with almonds and chicken is spicy and savory, it is good as a snack.
Tear the chicken along the fibers. The breast can be cut into long pieces if desired. We are not too small.
With a chopper or blender, puree 1 clove of garlic, almonds, tomato juice and a little salt into the most homogeneous gruel as possible.
Marinate the chicken in almond sauce for at least 1 hour at room temperature. You can keep it in the refrigerator for many hours. The longer, the better for this salad.
Cut the tomatoes just before serving the salad.
We spread the tomatoes and chicken together.
Sprinkle with grated cheese and almond petals, if used.
As you can see, with a minimum of effort, we got a very original and delicious salad with almonds and chicken.
