This recipe for chicken salad uses leftover chicken paired with thinly sliced Serrano ham. The ingredients are then tossed with cherry tomatoes, cucumber and pequillo peppers. A light dish ideal for a summer lunch which goes well with Spanish gazpacho or as a side dish to accompany barbecued meats. For this recipe we simply used sliced Serrano ham although for the classic chicken and bacon combination the ham could be fried or substituted for pancetta.
