I'm partying with my Bloggerette Sisters,
and today we're talkin' food.
I'm going to share one of my all-time favorite recipes.
And while I love to eat, the cooking part
is a 'not-so-much'.
So, I just kind of dump it together and call it dinner.
I pretty much guess on my amounts. So,
I cut up my apples to bite-sized pieces,
and I use whatever kind I happen to have.
Then, I chop
some lots of celery because
I love celery.
Add a handful of chopped walnuts, raisins/cranberries.
I love these too, so I tend to use a big handful.
The recipe calls for chicken breast, but
I use tenders. They're easier for me to cut.
Place them all in a large bowl.
Stir in some Italian dressing, and
I also add a dollop of mayo.
I just serve it from the bowl, but,
it looks pretty going to the table,
served on a bed of lettuce.
This is a wonderful, cool recipe for summer.
Here is the actual recipe for those
of you who don't like to guess.
Apple-Walnut Chicken Salad
5 ounces cooked chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces
1/2 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup chopped apple
2 ounces chopped walnuts
1 tablespoon raisins
1/3 cup low-sugar Italian dressing
In a medium bowl, gently stir together the chicken,
celery, apple, walnuts, and raisins. Pour the dressing
over the mixture and toss gently to coat.
Serve on a bed of Bibb lettuce.
