Waldorf Chicken Salad
I've seen so many recipes for this dish. Some complicated and others not so much.....but the main idea is this: Chicken, fruit and mayo.
This is a great meal for my family when its hot outside. We eat it on crackers, inside rolls, on a bed of lettuce, with little tostas, or just plain in a bowl. It's light, slightly sweet, and it's loaded with fruit which is always a hit with my kids.
Cooked, diced chicken breast
apples, several different kinds, diced with peel
almonds or walnuts
celery, cut into small pieces
I cut up everything, throw it in a bowl, fling on some mayo and honey and mix it up until it looks and tastes right.
I'm such a sophisticated cook, aren't I?! Following recipes isn't really my thing. I like to make things as simple as possible. Good food doesn't have to be complicated.
It's easy and fairly quick if you have some kids willing to help dice up the fruit and de-seed the grapes! (But if your stateside, you can buy seedless grapes...sniff...sniff...)
This week is full of celebrations for us and occasions to cook. Yesterday we had one of the girls teachers over to eat with us. I served this chicken salad which was very different for her, but she seemed to like it.
I'm linking up with Fringegirl over at The Domestic Fringe. Stop by her place for more fantastic summer recipes. Or better yet, post one of your own!
Hope you guys have a great week!
