Kardashian Chicken Salad Recipe | POPSUGAR Food


Twenty seasons and 14 years later, through babies, breakups, and every high and low, the Kardashians are still eating the same salad. You know, the ASMR-inducing one in the giant plastic bowl that has the ability to turn every lunchtime heart-to-heart into a main event? It’s clearly a constant in the Kardashians’ life, and after trying it for myself, it’s easy to see why.

The salad comes from The Health Nut in LA, and if you can’t get the real deal or have Kourtney Kardashian herself vigorously shake the bowl for you, it’s easy to make at home, especially if you have TikTok’s copycat recipe on hand.

Po’boys, fried chicken, grits, cobbler

Juneteenth is a time for celebration. It’s a time to bring my friends and family together with soul food at the center of the table.

As I continue to grow and learn as a Black man and chef, I often seek ways to reimagine the foods I’ve grown up eating. My Cornbread Sweet Potato Cobbler, Hot Honey Fried Chicken with White Cheddar Coconut Grits and Nashville Hot Catfish Po’boys are perfect examples of that.

I look at the the opportunity to feed people as an opportunity for me to share who I am and the stories and ingredients that my ancestors put into the meals that nourished the stomachs and souls of many generations.

So, no matter how you choose to celebrate this special day, keep in mind these dishes, as they are packed with soul, curiosity and, of course, flavor.

Recipes without an oven

Even if you adore cooking, the highest temperatures of the day hit in the late afternoon just when you start thinking, “What’s for dinner?” In summer, the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven and heat up your house, especially if you don’t have air conditioning. Or you may want to take advantage of the longer days to swim or garden instead of standing in a hot kitchen.

We take you through some dinner ideas for those dog days of summer, as well as some strategies to get meals prepped without breaking (too much of) a sweat. Take advantage of summer produce, batch cooking and a few smart kitchen
