Poppy Seed Chicken Salad
By • Filed In: Recipes

Yesterday’s post with Emeral’s Chili recipe inspired me.  I declare this week recipe week!  I’ll be sharing some of my favorites.

Today’s recipe is a very easy, quick, and yummy one.  It’s great for a snack, lunch, or dinner.  It’s Poppy Seed Chicken Salad!

All you do is combine the following ingredients.

Here’s what you need:

  • One rotisserie chicken, shredded OR 3 chicken breasts cooked and shredded (you can boil in water or put in the crock pot)
  • 3-4 stalks of celery sliced thin
  • 2-3 cup halved grapes
  • 1 cup walnuts (if you want them roasted, spread them on a cookie sheet and put in a 400 degree oven for 6-8 minutes)
  • 1/2 cup craisins
  • about 1 1/2 cups poppy seed dressing (I like Maple Grove Farms of Vermont.  It comes in a glass bottle and only has 35 calories for 2 tablespoons).  Just add a little at a time and stop until desired amount.
  • about 1/4 cup mayo
Serve with crackers or croissants.
I love the poppy seed dressing.  It’s way more flavorful than all the mayo that people usually put in and it’s wayyyyyy healthier!
Thanks to Cortney’s college sorority house mom for the poppy seed dressing tip!
Now that it’s recipe week, comment and share one of yours, or email it to me at justkalirae@gmail.com and I’ll create a post for you :)
