Tex-Mex Chicken Salad with Hatch Chile Jalapeno Jam Dressing | @melaniebauer at Melanie Makes

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by the kind folks at Robert Rothschild Farm to see if I’d be interested in trying a few of their products.  As I wasn’t immediately familiar with the brand, I did some research before responding.  

A gourmet food company that specializes in open and serve products?  My interest was definitely piqued!  Their product list is quite extensive including items such as Chocolate Macaroon Dip and Blue Cheese Dijon Mustard.  My mouth was watering.  I especially love that each of their products is produced on site in small batches in my new home state of Ohio.

Soon after I let them know that I’d love to sample their products, a package arrived including their Hatch Chile Jalapeno Jam.  I immediately started brainstorming of a recipe I could create using it.  This crisp salad with a dressing that is slightly sweet but with a kick of heat was the end result.

Serves 6
The perfect summer salad pairing of crisp, cool lettuce and vegetables and a slightly sweet dressing with a bit of heat. This protein packed salad makes an amazing lunch or dinner enjoyed outside.
