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
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!
