CHOCOLATE CHICKEN SALAD--BONNIE'S
cups diced chicken. we prefer deli roasted turkey breast.
cup seedless, green grapes,washed, cut in half, blot with paper towels
cup craisins (dried cranberries)
cup cashew nuts, unsalted, halves okay
teaspoons mayonnaise. i used best foods.
coarse ground black pepper to taste
ounces (1 square) chopped almond bark chocolate
1Dice roast turkey or chicken, remove any skin. Place in a medium mixing bowl.
2Wash the seedless grapes, cut in half, blot dry with paper towels and add to the bowl.
3Add the 1/2 cup of Craisins to the bowl.
4Add the 1/2 cup of Cashew nuts to the bowl
5Add the 1/4 cup of pine nuts.
6Add kosher salt and pepper to taste.
7Add 4 teaspoons of mayonnaise to the mixture in the bowl.
8Now for the chocolate. I use almond bark chocolate because it is lower in sugar and keeps its shape. The taste is also not overwhelming.
9Chop 2 ounces and add to the mixture in the bowl. If you have some shavings while chopping, that is okay, add them, too.
10Gently 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.
12Serve well-chilled. Enjoy!
13Cook's note: I do believe you can add anything you want to this salad with no regrets. So experiment and have fun with it.
