Sassy Chicken Salad. I whipped up this simple salad in a short amount of time. Of course, one of the amazing ingredients are Redpack Petite Diced Tomatoes. :) I love this salad because it has such a delightful combination of fruit and vegetables...the grapes add so much. I ended up leaving out the green chilies and just used the Petite Diced Tomatoes. I don't like spicy all that much so it worked out well. Want to make this salad yourself? Here's the recipe!
SASSY CHICKEN SALAD
MAKES 6 SERVINGS
PREPARATION TIME: 20 MINUTES
1 (10 ounce) can RED GOLD® DICED TOMATOES & GREEN CHILIES, drained
½ cup light mayonnaise
1 tablespoon honey
2 cups chunked cooked chicken breast
1 cup thinly sliced celery
1 cup grapes, halved
⅓ cup chopped toasted pecans
· In a medium bowl, combine RED GOLD® DICED TOMATOES & GREEN CHILIES, mayonnaise and honey. Stir in chicken, celery, grapes and pecans.
· Cover and chill. Maybe served in hollowed out melons, avocados or papayas. Also makes a great sandwich when served on a Croissant.
- Cooking Hint:
To toast pecans, bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350 degrees oven for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Another option is to toast them in the microwave. Place a single layer on a microwave safe plate and cook on high for 2 minutes. Stir and cook for 1 more minute.
