Have you ever wondered what to do with that leftover chicken from last nights dinner? Here is a great chicken salad recipe to the rescue. This chicken salad can be served with on a salad, whole grain bread or just served alone. It also is a great salad for picnics. It can be made in a pinch.
I also like to add walnuts and apples to my salad. It gives the chicken salad a bit of sweetness and a great crunchy nutty flavor too.
1/3 cup chopped or shredded cooked chicken or turkey
2 tablespoons chopped celery
1 tablespoon light mayonnaise dressing or salad dressing
1 tablespoon salsa
1 tablespoon shredded cheddar cheese
4 Mini taco shells or scoop-shaped tortilla chips
1. For chicken salad, in a small bowl combine chicken, celery, mayonnaise dressing, salsa, and cheese; toss to mix. Spoon into a container; cover tightly.
2. Wrap taco shells in plastic wrap. Pack chicken salad and taco shells in an insulated bag with an ice pack. To serve, use taco shells to scoop up the salad.
