This past weekend I played chef for friends who had family come to town for a wedding. I love cooking so this was a lot of fun for me. I didn’t get too elaborate with lunches. We just had salads and sandwiches. The potato salad I will share tomorrow was one of the salads. Another salad I made was chicken & fruit salad. I love this fresh & light chicken salad. The apples and grapes in it keep it light.
When I first made this salad for my grandma (the one that made the potato salad), she told me that sounded terrible and she didn’t want any. I made her try it and she loved it. She was just an old dog who wanted nothing to do with new tricks. I would recommend trying this new trick and so would she.
Chicken and Fruit Salad
1 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1/2 Red apple, cubed
1/2 Green apple, cubed
5 small chicken breast halves, cooked and cubed
1/2 bunch of red or green grapes, halved
1 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley, optional
1/4 cup pecans
1/4 cup celery
Salt & pepper to taste
In a small bowl, mix mayo & vinegar. Mix remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Pour dressing over salad and stir. Serve right away or refrigate and serve cold.
