Chicken salad

August 23, 2012 § 10 Comments

I recently whipped up some chicken salad for our lunches.   This time, I decided to add some dried cranberries and sunflower seeds to the mix.  We had a green apple sitting around, so I threw that in there too.

The new additions were very tasty.  Dave usually complains about food surprises, particularly when I change a tried and true favorite.  This time he said nothing…I’m pretty sure he liked it as much as I did.  It was delicious on spinach leaves.  Dave had his on homemade French bread.  The next time I make this, I want to try substituting thyme or marjoram for the cumin.

Chicken salad

2 chicken breasts, cooked and chopped (3 cups)

1 whole green apple, cored and chopped

½ cup dried cranberries

¼ cup chopped Italian parsley

Juice of ½ a lime

½ cup chopped pecans

2 tablespoons chopped red onion

3 tablespoons sunflower seed kernels

1 teaspoon powdered cumin

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

1 cup mayonnaise (more or less)

Combine all ingredients, adding slightly more or less mayonnaise according to taste.  Serve on French bread or lettuce or spinach leaves.
