Chicken Salad Recipe

I really like my mom’s chicken salad with grapes and ranch seasoning. But, I didn’t have any grapes so I went to Recipe Puppy, typed in the ingredients I had on hand and a chicken salad recipe that used honey mustard came up. I was a little scared at first, so I made a small batch. I added apple pieces and made my own honey mustard sauce. I think this chicken salad is great with crackers or would make a great sandwich (add a piece of romaine lettuce and a few slices of tomato). It is a quick and easy lunch that isn’t too terribly unhealthy. Here is my take on the recipe. INGREDIENTS 1 can (12.5 ounces) Organic Canned Chicken 1 medium Fuji Apple 1/2 cup walnut and pecan pieces 1 teaspoon pepper 1/2 cup mayonnaise 3-4 tablespoons (rounded) yellow mustard 2-3 tablespoons honey DIRections Drain chicken and shred using two forks. Peel (optional) and chop Fuji apple into small chunks. In a small bowl combine yellow mustard and honey. The consistency should be a little runny. …

Creamy Smoothie Recipe

I took this recipe from Epicurious and made a couple of changes. This smoothie had more of a milkshake consistency and was pretty good. I have been taking ripe bananas, breaking them into chunks and freezing them so that I don’t have to use ice cubes. Ingredients 1 1/2 frozen banana chunks 8 ounces light vanilla soy milk 2 tablespoons brown sugar 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg Directions 1. Place all ingredients in blender and blend until desired consistency. For a thicker consistency, add ice cubes.
