Brazilian Salpicão Salad


2 medium onions

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

3 whole chicken breasts

3 cloves garlic, minced

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon sweet paprika

1/3 cup roughly chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

200g raisins

450g green beans, trimmed

500g  carrots

600g white potatoes

3 Tablespoons Prep Premium Lemon infused oil


Peel and mince 1 onion, and set aside.

In a large, heavy pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chicken breasts; brown on each side for 10 minutes. Add garlic; saute 1 minute.

Stir in 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, reserved minced onion, and paprika. Saute until onion becomes soft.

Add 3 cups water; bring to a boil.

Reduce heat; cover, and simmer for 30 minutes.

Add parsley; simmer until softened, about 5 minutes more.

Transfer chicken to a large bowl to cool. Strain cooking liquid; pour over chicken. Remove meat from bones; discard skin and bones. Using your fingers, shred meat. Cover, and chill 30 minutes.


Cut beans into 1/4-inch-long pieces. Place in a bowl; set aside. Wash, peel, and grate carrots. Place in another bowl; set aside. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Blanch cut beans until just tender, about 2 minutes. Remove beans from water and place in bowl of ice water to cool.

Blanch carrots and then place in a bowl of ice water to chill. Drain carrots, and set aside. Slice remaining onion into thin rounds. Place in a third bowl; cover, and set aside.

Wash and peel potatoes. Place in a large bowl; cover with cold water. Set aside.

Cover bottom of a medium stockpot with 2 inches of vegetable oil. Heat oil until a frying thermometer registers 375 degrees.

Grate a potato over a towel, pat dry, and immediately place in hot oil. Fry until golden brown. Remove potato from oil, and transfer to a large paper-towel-covered surface; drain.

Repeat with remaining potatoes, adding vegetable oil if necessary.

In a large serving bowl, toss all reserved ingredients with mayonnaise and the Lemon infused oil

Season with salt and pepper, and serve.
