Chicken Salad

Posted by Lori:
There are many different varieties of chicken salad recipes around - from plain to fancy.  This chicken salad (in lower right of above photo) is delicious and has many different flavors that mingle together to provide a treat for your tastebuds, and is another recipe compliments of the ladies of the church in Durant, OK.  (See previous post for more details.)

Chicken Salad

4-5 cups cooked chicken (shredded or finely chopped...preferrably chicken breasts)
1/4 cup finely chipped red onions
1 stalk celery, finely diced
1 small apple (cored and finely chopped)
1/3 cup toasted chopped almonds (coarsely chopped)
1/2 cup red seedless grapes (sliced into halves or quarters)
2/3 cup Craisins
1/2 cup plain yogurt (or sour cream)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2-3 teaspoons honey (to taste)
Black pepper

In a large bowl, combine cooked chicken, celery, onion, Craisins, grapes, apple, and almonds.  Toss to combine.  In a bowl combine the mayonnaise, yogurt (or sour cream), and honey.  Add wet mixture to chicken mixture.  Combine well.  Season with black pepper to taste.

This salad looks very elegant served on a leaf of lettuce. It tastes great eaten alone, as well as with bread or crackers.
