Smoked Paprika Chicken Salad with Homemade Ranch Dressing

Smoked Paprika Chicken Salad from

I'm so excited to share with you today, I have been working with KitchenAid as a contributor to their blog launched this past May! This is my second recipe, a Smoked Paprika Chicken Salad with Homemade Ranch Dressing! You'll love it, I know it! My first recipe for KitchenAid was an Asian-Style Roasted Whole Snapper.

These two recipes are part of KitchenAid's kitchen challenges; encouraging us all that there's more to make and to push ourselves in the kitchen. I love them because each one I have participated in have actually been a challenge for me. Stretching where I want to go and where I can go in the kitchen.

For the recipe, hop on over to the KitchenAid blog!

Prince “says” she liked it and hopes you'll go check out and comment on my Smoked Paprika Chicken Salad with Homemade Ranch Dressing! 😉
