Chicken and Wild Rice Salad

The weather is getting warmer and that means it is salad time for dinner! Quick, easy and the best part is not heating up the kitchen. This recipe was given to me my a sweet young mom from our church and is a crowd pleaser! I substituted chicken breast tenders instead of chicken breast and did not use mushrooms this time.

2 Packages Uncle Ben's Wild Rice
4 Chicken Breast, Cooked, Cubed
2 Cups Chopped Celery
1 Cup Green Pepper
8 oz Fresh Mushrooms (Optional)

1 Cup Mayonnaise
1 Package Italian Dressing Mix
1/3 Cup Olive Oil
1/3 Cup Red Wine Vinegar
6 oz Artichokes (Drained)

Prepare rice according to directions on the box but only use 1 packet of seasoning. While rice is cooking, place all the ingredients for the dressing in a food processor and mix throughly.

Mix rice, chicken, celery, and green pepper in a large bowl. Add dressing and mix. Refrigerate until ready to eat. Add mushrooms before serving.
