One of my favorite summertime dishes is chicken salad. I have two recipes that I make quite often, but this is my favorite. These are the ingredients you'll need, along with a secret one that I'll share later:
three boiled chicken breasts
mayonnaise or salad dressing (Miracle Whip)
Step 1: Cut up your cooked chicken breasts into very small pieces and put in a large bowl.
I cooked lots of chicken because I'm going to freeze some for a Sunday chicken dish later. That's also a great recipe that I'm going to share in a few weeks.
Step 2: Add 1/2 cup of chopped celery and 1/2 cup of chopped onion to the chicken.
Step 3: Next, add 1 cup of sliced, seedless grapes and 1/2 cup of chopped pecans.
Step 4: Mix all of these ingredients and sprinkle on 3/4 to 1 tsp. of seasoned salt and 1/2 tsp. of black pepper. Mix well. ( I like to sprinkle half of the seasoned salt, stir, then sprinkle the rest to make sure it's distributed well.)
See, I told you to use a large bowl. I had to transfer mine to a larger one!
Step 5: Oops! I forgot to take a picture! Add 1 cup of mayonnaise or Miracle Whip. I prefer Miracle Whip, but I also ate Miracle Whip and white bread sandwiches after school when I was a child, so what do I know? And, oh yes, another confession....on days when I'm feeling really overweight, I use fat-free Miracle Whip. :)
Now, for my secret ingredient.................
Step 6: Add 1 tsp. of hot sauce and mix well. If you like the taste, add another 1/2 tsp. Refrigerate and give all the flavors time to mix. Serve as a salad or make a sandwich. Enjoy!
I'm so excited! Yesterday, while driving home, I came up behind this.....
I got so excited because I've been trying to catch a picture of this for a long time. This is my neighbor, Bob, "walking" his dog. He does this every day, but I always run to grab my camera and by the time I get back he's too far down the street to get the picture. When they turn around to come back, the dog is on the other side.
So.... yesterday, I just stopped my car and chased them down. Here's the picture of Bob and his dog. And I feel bad because I don't even know the dog's name....
If you look closely, you'll see that the dog is carrying an Easter basket with a stuffed cat in it. He carries something in that basket every day! Around Easter it was full of plastic eggs! Isn't that the cutest thing you've ever seen?
