Spring Chicken





Doing the usual spiffing for Easter and spring.  The temps teased us a few days with balmy weather, but a week of snow and shivers looms in our forecast.  So I make a spring salad anyway...   2 c. roaster chicken or canned white meat chicken.  grapes, Granny Smith green apple, almonds or walnuts or pecans, any variety of raisin or craisin, a tin of sliced water chestnuts, a small, drained can of chunk pineapple....  Enough Miracle Whip to bind it...  or I use mayo with a tsp. lemon to brighten...  I use whatever of those ingredients I have but the green apple is kind of a "must" in my opinion.

This chicken salad recipe took me right back to an event I co-hosted years ago. It was a purity event for teen girls and we had a tea. This was the recipe we used for the lunch sandwiches(Except I don't remember the apples) and they were so very good!
Isn't it funny how we associate food with so many different things?
