Fried Chicken Salad

Take left over fried chicken ....

And make Fried Chicken Salad! 

I remember the first time I had this wonderful dish. It was 1990 and I was with a few co workers at a small cafe in Opelousas, LA. The Palace Cafe ( It's still there today, serving up the best food around!) 
Want to try it? 
Here's all you need:
A LARGE bowl
Left over fried chicken ( or run out and buy some!)
Salad greens ( I like romaine)
Two tomatoes

Sweet pickle relish 
Salt and black pepper

Take the chicken off the bone and chop it up, but not too small! 
Tear the lettuce into the bowl
Cut the tomatoes into wedges and toss into the bowl. 
Salt and pepper lightly! 
Add the chicken pieces
Mix 2 or 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise with about a teaspoon of sweet pickle relish. This is your dressing. 
Mix it in ,a tablespoon at a time ,until your salad has the desired amount of dressing .
