Chicken Salad with Walnuts, Raisins and Apples.
My favorite dishes are simple dishes. I love cooking but I don’t like staying in front of the stove everyday for hours (besides who has time for that) so sometimes I just make quick lunch meals like chicken salad sandwich which I can take with me to school. As opposed to tuna salad you do not have to worry about ‘fishy’ smell surrounding you when you unpack your lunch, so it’ just perfect to take with you to school, work or any place where you’ll be eating around people. Nevertheless tuna can be prepared exactly the same way and it is as delicious as chicken so if you don’t care about ‘fishy’ smell go ahead and try one with tuna instead.
Ingredients (2 servings):
6 oz cooked chicken
1/4 cup light mayo (I like Smart Balance)
2 Tbsp honey mustard (or Dijon mustard + some honey)
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup raisins
1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
1/4 cup apple cut into tiny cubes
Shred and chop chicken until it resembles chunky tuna.
Mix with the rest of the ingredients and season with salt and pepper.
Serve on a salad, with crackers, in sandwich or wrapped in tortilla.
