Asparagus & Chicken Salad (Schwetzinger Spargelsalat)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

The unusual combination of pineapple and asparagus makes this German chicken salad distintive and appealing. Though it is untried, I plan to make it soon and add my own tweaks. Note the brief preparation time does not include cooking the chicken or asparagus. Submitted for 'Zaar World Tour.

This is delicious. I changed the proportions a little bit so that there would be more of a 1 to 1 ratio between the tomatoes, asparagus, pineapple, and chicken. I have made it twice now. It is delicious. In prepping the chicken I cooked it in Cooking White Wine. That went really well.

This was so mush better than I even thought it would be. Thank you for posting. I will be making again.
