This salad is simple, nutritious, and delicious!!
A simple twist on an everyday salad especially the balsamic vinegar . I made this for my mum, and mother in-law also for myself . We thoroughly enjoyed it , so folks from my table to yours hope you like and enjoy as much as we all did ....

Why not add to this some crispy bacon it really adds to the flavour the day I made this I realised I forgot to buy bacon , but it was still delicious ... :)

prepare all the vegetables , place the peeled and diced potatoes into a steamer (double boiler)and let steam for 8 - 10 minutes so the potatoes become a little tender . we don't want them too soft at this stage just part cooked .
2
place a large pan over a medium heat ,pour in the tablespoons of oil . To that add the part cooked potatoes and fry for 3 to 4 minutes until the potatoes cook fully and start to crisp up around the edges..
3
Then add to the potatoes all the prepared vegetables and cooked chicken and cook for a further 5 minutes till all the vegetables are tender . Add a little salt and pepper to season.
4
While everything is in the pan, start to get your plates ready , with the fresh rocket salad leaves. Grab a hand full of rocket leaves and place on your plate then drizzle 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar over them . Then on top of that place your warm chicken salad from the pan and add an other drizzle of balsamic vinegar over your chicken salad and to finish it off nicely, a drizzle of truffle oil . This adds great rustic flavour . And there you have a delicious mouth watering warm chicken salad ..enjoy.... :)
