For some reason I’ve had a hankering for chicken salad lately – I’m not sure if it was inspired by the cherry chicken pasta salad that I recently made or the desire to find something new and exciting for lunch, but this is the perfect light lunch for a sunny, summer day. This lunch proved to be quite filling over a bed of arugula and I love the juicy sweetness that the grapes added. An added bonus? Two lunches completed on Sunday, which significantly cuts down on my normally ridiculous lunch prep. :)

Chicken Salad - 2 servings

  • 1 organic chicken breast
  • 4 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 2 cups red grapes, sliced in half
  • 1 Tbsp light mayonnaise (I used a vegan canola oil mayo)
  • 2 Tbsp Simply Boulder Culinary Honey Dijon Sauce
  • salt & pepper

Poach or cook chicken breast. Let cool and cut into pieces. Combine all ingredients and chill for at least 1 hour. Serve over greens or on bread.

    I never used to like fruit in with savory/meats, etc. Now, I LOVE it. This looks like a winner.
