My Venezuelan mother-in-law taught me to make this chicken salad. Don't let the 'red' part, which comes from beets, scare you away! I usually just throw this together with however much I have of the ingredients, so trying to figure out measurements is a challenge. Be sure to suit your own tastes with the dressing using more or less mayonnaise, pickle juice, salt and pepper.

Instructions Checklist
  • Place the potatoes and carrots into a large pot and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until potatoes are tender enough to pierce with a fork, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water to cool. Set aside.

  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion; cook and stir until tender and light brown, about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.

  • In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, carrots, chicken, eggs and pickles. In a separate bowl, whisk together the onion, pickle juice and mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper. Pour over the potato mixture and stir gently to coat. Adjust the amounts of mayonnaise, salt and pepper if desired. Gently stir in beets last. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to blend flavors before serving.
