Fruited Chicken Salad
3-4 cups cooked diced chicken (I used a mix of canned, with rotisserie from my freezer)
1 c. celery, chopped
1 small apple, chopped (I used Gala)
1/2 c. dried cranberries and 1/2 c. dried blueberries
1 t dried thyme
1 t dried dill
1 t. lemon pepper seasoning
1 c. olive oil mayo
This recipe used up some dibs and dabs of things I needed to use up, including some chicken from the freezer and the rest of a bag of craisins. I could also have added pecans or slivered almonds - yum.
You could adjust these seasonings to make this salad your own - I left out the poultry seasoning that was in the original, in favor of just thyme and dill. But to make it even easier, I could have used some of my homemade ranch mix from the fridge. And if I'd lemony mayo on hand, I could have skipped the lemon pepper, however, we do love lemon pepper around here!
Chop everything and add to a large bowl; add to that the seasonings
Give it a toss to make sure the fruit or chicken isn't in a clump. Then stir in the mayo thoroughly, cover, and chill.
I set mine out with a loaf of bread and some grapes - we were out of chips, but that's just as well! It made for a great summer dinner and one I will make again!
