A Date with Chicken Salad


What would we do without chicken?  When in doubt, make something with chicken, right?  It's so versatile and easy to disguise.  For this meal, I wanted to create a chicken salad that would be a little out of the ordinary.  Add dates!   With a few ingredients we had a nice light dinner - very Spring-like!

Chicken Salad with Dates
serves 2

2 cups pre-cooked chicken breast meat, chopped.  I baked
 them with a little olive oil and herb de Provence

10 dates, chopped

1 handful sliced almonds

1 Tbsp red onion, chopped

2 Tbsp organic mayonnaise

1 tsp organic horseradish mustard

Place all the ingredients into a bowl.  Mix well and mound onto salad greens, with avocado slices and maybe a bit of wonton strips for crunch.  Drizzle with your favorite dressing.  This would be great in a sandwich, too!

  1. Looks so good Wendy, I love serving chicken and tuna salad for supper in the warmer months. I love the addtion of horseradish mustard, try adding some fennel next time it adds a real fresh flavor!

  2. Did I already know you like Dario Castagno, I love him too. He just published a new coffee table book have you got it? Maybe we could do an informal book club with one of his many books?

    1. I have all his books except the new one. They're special because we actually stayed in his village for a week..good times and familiar surroundings.
