Going Pineapple for Chicken Salad

Here comes the summer and with it comes the feeling of heaviness on the body when heavy meals are eaten in this season.Chicken as a light meat and pineapple as a juicy fruit are more appropriate in the summer than heavy sauces and meats. Pineapple is rich in vitamin C and not only that but also supplies the body with vitamin A, pantothenic acid and folate. With its juiciness that is a good replenishment for the body to remain hydrated, there is nothing like having pineapple in the hot summer months. While chicken is rich in protein, it also provides the body with phosphorus, tryptophan, vitamin B6, selenium,vitamin B3 and more. Though it can be prepared anytime you want, Pineapple Chicken Salad recipes are especially great in the summer. The sweet-tasting pineapple gives a more delicious taste into the chicken salad you surely wouldn’t want to miss when picking your favorites served on a buffet table. The lemon juice, pepper, salt as well as the tomatoes make the salad more flavorful which creates a perfect balance in your palate.
