Well, I just lost my post about chicken salad and I am not going to re-type it right now.

What do you put in your chicken salad?

Well, I love spicy foods, so here's mine.

Chili powder and cumin help flavor the dressing for this spicy chicken salad. Serve this salad with a garnish of sour cream and shredded cheese, or jalapeno rings and chopped cilantro.
Ingredients:

    * 2 cups diced cooked chicken
    * 1 can (15 ounces) great northern beans, rinsed and drained
    * 1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
    * 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
    * 1/2 cup sliced black olives
    * 1 tablespoon lime juice
    * 1 medium avocado
    * Salad greens
    * Sour cream, optional
    * Cheddar cheese, optional
    * Pickled Jalapeno pepper rings, optional
    * Finely chopped cilantro
    * ---
    * Dressing:
    * 1/3 cup cider vinegar or red wine vinegar
    * 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf oregano
    * 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    * 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    * 1 scant teaspoon salt
    * 2 teaspoons sugar or honey
    * Dash cayenne, or to taste
    * 1 clove garlic, finely minced
    * 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

Preparation:
In a large bowl, combine the chicken, beans, onion, bell pepper, and sliced olives; toss with lime juice. Refrigerate.

Combine dressing ingredients in a screw-top jar or container with lid; shake to blend well. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving time.

To serve, pour about half of the dressing over the chicken and bean mixture; toss to coat. Arrange greens on serving plates and top with sliced avocado and a generous amount of the chicken and bean mixture. Garnish, if desired, with sour cream, shredded cheese, and a few jalapeno pepper rings. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro.
Pass the remaining dressing at the table.
Serves 4 to 6.
