Food Friday

Today's recipe is again what my mom used to make.  I remember her making it when I was a teenager.
I made this for dinner last night and it did not get good reviews from the kids.
But I love it.
One mistake I made though was doubling the recipe, thinking the kids were going to eat it.
I should have just made the original recipe.  I think in doubling it, I added to much salt and lemon juice to the dressing.
So don't do that!

Chicken Salad

2C red grapes, sliced in half
1C cooked brown rice
Tyson chicken chunks (or any ready to eat, precooked chicken strips)

1/2 C mayo
2T lemon juice
1/2 t salt

Sometimes my mom added almond slices or cashews.
I cannot do that with Sophie's allergies.

I did use the seal salt grinder you see in the picture and I think that may have been my problem.  I should have used table salt.

But I do love this salad, the tangy lemon in the dressing, with the salt and then the sweetness of the grapes.
It is so good!


  1. I think I may want to try this. It sounds great!

  2. hey Prudence, Looks like you've been busy! Summer has been crazy, vacations, making art and getting ready for the Iowa State fair has consumed all my spare time, No time to blog! I love all the lolli bags you're making for the Creative Connection. Look-in Great!It seems like the more people you cook for the more veto's your likely to get. I tried a new meal the other day Chicken Marsala, No one be me liked it! Many Blessing, Deborah
