Fruited Chicken Salad

This is 'marinating' in the fridge as I type. It's so yummy! I'm serving this on whole-grain buns with lettuce. That wasn't my original intention, but since I chopped everything in my food processor it's the perfect consistency for a sandwich. I think it would be very nice served on a whole-grain focaccia with lettuce, tomato and cucumber.

For four people:

1 lb chicken cooked and diced
1 stalk celery, diced
1/4 of a large red onion diced
1 sweet apple peeled, cored and diced
1/3 c raisins soaked then drained (you don't need to soak them if you're going to let it set an hour before serving)
1/3 cup seedless green grapes, halved
1/2 c chopped walnuts
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/2 c light mayonnaise
1 tsp lemon juice

Mix everything together in a large bowl and serve! Using the food processor makes it quicker and less messy. I do chop each item separately so they retain their individual flavours.

About Me

I am a happily married woman with four children and various cats and kittens (fosters). I love to read and my favourite authors are George RR Martin, Thomas Hardy, Raymond Carver, PD James, Kurt Vonnegut, J. K. Rowling, and Margaret Atwood. I know there are only three women in that list (and none of them American), so if you'd like to suggest some I'm willing to give them a shot! And yes, I am an American living in Canada. (Hence the nick -- CannedAm.) I like it here. There are things about the states that I miss, but my love is here and this country has things to offer that my own does not. Things that make my quality of life much better than it ever was in Ohio. Guess I'm stuck here. Though there's a nice spot in the Appalachian hills where I'd love to spend my retirement.
