Chicken Salad Extraordinaire
The following recipe includes directions for a fresh, light, side salad that can be served together for a complete meal. It's the perfect dinner for a hot, summer night! My good friend Heather is responsible for this fantastic combination. I first enjoyed this meal on a summer afternoon as my daughter and I had lunch with Heather and her daughter at their home.
1 c mayonnaise
2 t apple cider vinegar
6 t honey
pinch each of salt and pepper
One rotisserie chicken - remove and chop meat
3/4 c pecan pieces - toasted or use pecans that have already been toasted and candied - available at Trader Joe's - (yum)
2 c seedless red grapes, halved
2 stalks of celery, finely chopped
Mix all everything together and fill croissants with the chicken salad.
I served the chicken salad croissants with a salad made with fresh baby greens, sliced strawberries, sliced avocado, sliced peaches, blueberries, more candied pecans and perlini (fresh mozzarella pearls) and a raspberry dressing.
