This is a wonderful bowl of heaven. So satisfying, very filling, healthy, and delicious. Makes a great lunch salad. It will also be a great way to use left-over roasted turkey. This salad is good without the chocolate, but with it, it is over the top. Enjoy!

1/2

4

2
ounces (1 square) chopped almond bark chocolate

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Dice roast turkey or chicken, remove any skin. Place in a medium mixing bowl.
2
Wash the seedless grapes, cut in half, blot dry with paper towels and add to the bowl.
3
Add the 1/2 cup of Craisins to the bowl.
4
Add the 1/2 cup of Cashew nuts to the bowl
5
Add the 1/4 cup of pine nuts.
6
Add kosher salt and pepper to taste.
7
Add 4 teaspoons of mayonnaise to the mixture in the bowl.
8
Now for the chocolate. I use almond bark chocolate because it is lower in sugar and keeps its shape. The taste is also not overwhelming.
9
Chop 2 ounces and add to the mixture in the bowl. If you have some shavings while chopping, that is okay, add them, too.
10
Gently combine ingredients with a wooden spoon until well mixed. The salad should have just enough mayo to wet the ingredients and not smother it. You can always add more if you desire.
