I love chicken salad, but most of the recipes are so bad for you. Over the years I've combined several of my favorite recipes to come up with a healthy chicken salad recipe. It is so so good! I could sit there and eat it right out of the bowl. Not that I ever have... :)
What you need:
1 or 2 cooked chicken breasts
start with 2 Tablespoons olive oil mayo (full of the healthy fats that are good for you) ,but adjust to your tastes
spoonful of sweet pickle relish
2/3 cup of your favorite nuts ( I like walnuts, pecans or almonds)
1/2 stalk of celery
2/3 cup grapes or raisins
This time of year there are so many delicious apples to use, just pick your favorite variety for your salad.
Dice and chop up the apples, chicken, celery, nuts and grapes. Mix everything together and chill for a few hours before serving. You can serve it right after making it but it just tastes a little better chilled. Enjoy!! Do you have any yummy and nutritious recipes to share? I am always looking for new recipes.
