If You Can't Take the Heat....then Fix a Salad!
Now that the hot weather has really arrived here in coastal Alabama, I'm looking for good meals which don't require an oven or stove-top. I came across this recipe for Chicken Waldorf Salad (Pillsbury) that is next on my list.
The recipe is from Pillsbury's "Cooking for Two" section, but it could easily be changed for larger servings.
1 c. cubed deli rotisserie chicken breast (from 3- to 3 1/2-lb chicken)
1 medium unpeeled apple, cubed (1 cup)
1 medium stalk celery, sliced (1/2 cup)
1/2 cup red seedless grapes, cut in half
1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
2 T. refrigerated coleslaw dressing
2 leaf lettuce leaves
1 T. thinly sliced chives
1. In large bowl, mix all ingredients except lettuce and chives
2. Place 1 lettuce leaf on each of 2 serving plates; spoon salad onto lettuce. Sprinkle with chives.
This takes about 20 minutes to prepare. I'd rather make more servings so that there would be enough for more than one meal.
