I put this over a mixed green lettuce salad, and then drizzled homemade dressing over top: https://dancinandcookininthekitchen.com/2014/06/02/my-favorite-homemade-salad-dressing-vinaigrette/HomeMade Dressing
This chicken salad is very satisfying and, in my opinion, guilt free! This one is all taste and no worries!! Definitely try this one out!
So… I served the chicken salad with a FRUIT salad… and it got such rave reviews, I am going to put the “dressing” that I put onto it here!
Ok… so I put blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, white peaches, and grapes into a bowl. Then, I juiced 1 1/2 lemons and zested 1 lemon, added 2 TB honey and some mint and whisked. I then poured the “dressing” over the fruit and tossed as a salad. This whole bowl, PLUS the amount I gave my parents was GONE!!! It’s a good one!!!!
