With Easter so early this year I haven't really given much thought to St Patrick's Day - but what I have given much thought to this week is this chicken salad. I have eaten it four times already (true story) and can't get enough. Have you ever tried chicken salad without the mayo? Well this is the version I've been loving, it's creamy, sweet and spicy and when I made it for Chris he looked up and said "woah this is really good"...so there you go, husband approved!
Green Chicken Salad:
1 ripe avocado
1 can of chicken (if you're a veg mashing a can of chickpeas with the avocado instead is super good)
a handful of red grapes cut in half (dried cranberries would be awesome too!)
two chopped green onions
a teaspoon or so of dijon (optional)
herbs de provence, I like several pretty good shakes but just eyeball it
Mash the avocado with the chicken, stir in everything else and season to taste. Serve with crackers, cucumbers or just straight out of the bowl standing over the sink like me as fast as you can while the children are grabbing at your legs :)...enjoy!
