Chicken Salad

Do you enjoy sandwiches?  I enjoy them if they are flavorful.  I don’t like dry, single flavored sandwiches.  I want some combinations of textures, savory, sweet, salty flavors, creamy but not mushy, and a slight crunch.  Now thats a sandwich!

 I am pregnant, and I am having lots of different food cravings.  I have been asking myself, “what sounds like it would taste good together today?”  And I came up with a wonderful treat as an answer.

Nourishing Chicken Salad

1/2 cup of cooked Chicken (I reserved this from an organic free range chicken I cooked in the crockpot)
4 cherry tomatoes cut in half
1/4 cup chopped Celery with leaves
1 grated carrot
1/4 cup diced apple (I use golden delicious.  It is the lowest in salicylates of all the apples).
1/8 cup chopped spring onion (with or without the green part, I just used the tender white part)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup Mayonase  (I like to use mayonaise made with safflower oil (no soy oil) from Spectrum)

Mix the above ingredients together, tossing gently until mixed.  You will get this amazing nourshing chicken salad combination.

I decided not use bread today.  

Today, I wanted to use some bright green colors, aromatic herbs, and sweet berries from my garden in my meal, but knowing the children would be less likely to eat it if I put very much green or strong flavors in it, I opted to use these wonderful leaves and ingredients you see on this plate as a wrapper on the outside of my chicken salad.

Just layer the leaves, herbs, and berries, and scoop some chicken salad into the middle and eat it like a taco.  It was so delicious and refreshing.  It was bursting with textures and flavors.  

A very nutritious chicken salad!
