Great Summer Salads: our favorite recipes

Ready for another salad? You bet! It is simply too hot and humid to eat heavy meals. I like to bake up a bunch of chicken breasts one day a week and work the cold meat into the week’s recipes. This is my famous chicken salad–it has evolved over time and changes depending upon what is in the fridge. One thing that always remains: The salad MUST be served on a bed of greens garnished with tomatoes.


4 boneless chicken breasts, baked and diced into 1/2″ cubes
2 celery stalks, diced
1 small onion, diced
1/4 nuts (I like toasted pine nuts or slivered almonds)
1 cup grapes, sliced in half (optional)
1/2 cup crasins or raisins
1/4 cup mayo
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp mustard
1/2 tsp tarragon
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp fresh lemon juice

Mix all the above ingredients. Enjoy. The leftovers are amazing and this also works great stuffed into pita bread for lunches.
