Monday's Leftovers: Chicken Salad Veronique

Monday's Leftovers: Chicken Salad Veronique

One of my favorite things to do with leftover chicken is chicken salad. Usually I shred it over tasty beds of lettuce, but sometimes I really enjoy the taste and crunch of a mixed chicken salad. I love the taste and texture that other ingredients bring to the party. In this recipe, crunchy celery, sweet grapes and smooth avocado are just some of the ingredients that blend together to make a great leftover chicken salad. You can serve it over lettuce, or scoop it between slices of your favorite bread. To check out this delicious recipe,

Oooh! That sounds good! I've never tried it with avocado or carrots. Sometimes I add sweet relish into my chicken salad.

Oooooh and maybe some dried cranberries, diced up, can be thrown in instead of grapes. :DROOL:

Pistachios sound like a great addition. I more commonly have walnuts on hand, though. I think that would be another interesting addition.

Oooh nice combo! When we make chicken salad, we throw in tiny cut up celery also. We also add cut up carrots, tiny green olives, peas, and shredded lettuce. Very good.

this is how i make mine: chicken (duh), garlic pwder, pistachios put into a food processor until very fine, red seedless grapes, onion, pepper, lite mayo, and, i had bought an avocado to add and forgot i had it until i read your recipe. seems like all i am missing is the celery and carrots! mine is yummy though. OH, I almost forgot, if i have any on hand i add a bit of shredded aged gruyere. not a lot, just a bit to add that rich flavor and it paris well withthe pistachios.
