The weather has been absolutely GORGEOUS, here in our neck of the woods! Yesterday
the temps were at a record high of 80 degrees!!! Now, of course, this isn’t going to last
(50’s next week)-so I decided to take full advantage of the glorious weather in the afternoon
and get caught up on some outdoor chores. The lawn was raked-gardens were cleaned
out-porch furniture was dusted off-and when it was finally time for a break…….
I whipped up one of my favorite ‘summertime’ salad’s for lunch! I’m not sure if it’s
the crunchiness of the celery-the tartness of the cranberries-or the creamy dressing,
but I just can’t get enough of this YUMMY salad!!
And it’s SO easy to make!!!
Here is what you’ll need:
3 cups cooked chicken (diced) **I used leftover roasted chicken from the night before)
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup celery (diced)
3 Tablespoons chopped red onion
6 Tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Apples and nuts are optional
Combine mayonnaise and lemon juice in a small bowl. Add curry powder
salt and pepper. Add chicken, celery, cranberries, and onion. Mix well.
Serve over a bed of lettuce, or on your favorite bread! Serves 4. (If you don’t eat the
whole bowl yourself!!)
