After the Seder, Then What?

For the dressing: Combine all of the ingredients in a container with firmly fitting lid and shake until an emulsion is formed.

To combine, toss half the dressing with the quinoa mixture; adjust seasoning if desired. Add more dressing as necessary, but the result shouldn't be too moist.

Not-So-Basic Chicken Salad

6 to 8 servings

This recipe makes the most of the flavorful poached chicken left over from making soup for the Seder meals. Carrots add a subtle sweetness. This is adapted from the recipe I made with 3-year-olds on "Good Morning America" many years ago.

3 to 4 cups shredded cooked chicken (from two 3 1/2-pound chickens used to make chicken soup)

1 1/4 cups finely diced celery (about 4 stalks)

3 carrots, peeled and grated

1 tablespoon grated onion

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 cup mayonnaise (kosher for Passover or regular), plus additional as necessary

In a medium bowl, combine ingredients and adjust seasonings to taste. Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate.
