Here’s a quick Tasty Tuesday to let you know about a dish I’ve been making a lot lately. The weather’s still warm here, and we’re still enjoying our grill. Often we’ll have leftover chicken, and I’ve had a great time making chicken salad.
What I love about chicken salad is that you can add all sorts of ingredients from your fridge for different flavors and textures.
Just start by cubing your leftover chicken.
You’re going to add mayo to tie it all together, but first, get creative. Some of my favorite “adds” include eggs, celery, grapes, apples, raisins and nuts. Now spoon in enough mayo to create the consistency you like.
Add your own flavor.
To kick up the flavor, try adding rosemary or a dash of curry or cajun seasoning. One or two breasts makes just enough for a couple of sandwiches. Or, my daughter likes eating the salad on Ritz crackers.
Yummy, relatively healthy, and a great way to use up those leftovers. Give it a try!
