Not Your Traditional Chicken Salad

Helaine Norman

By

It was lunch time and I really needed to use some leftover store bought roasted chicken before it spoiled. I need to grocery shop and did not have much in the fridge, so I used what I had to make this chicken salad and it was so good, I'll definitely make it again. Fresh spinach is what makes it different.

Prep:

15 Min

Method:

No-Cook or Other

Ingredients

1
chicken breast pre-cooked, chopped coarsley (unless you want to cook your own first)
1/2
bell pepper, any color
1/4 c
fresh spinach, minced finely (if possible in a small chopper)
1/2 c
or less sweet or purple onion, minced
1/4 c
jarred mayonnaise of your choice (or to taste)
2 Tbsp
jarred mustard of your choice (or to taste)
1 Tbsp
catsup (or to taste)
garlic powder to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Just mix all ingredients and serve.
2
You can use all the ingredients to fit the amounts to fit your individual taste buds. We like it rather medium dry, not swimming in mayo.
3
I was out of the usual celery and had some spinach and pretty much nothing else in the fridge so it is what I used. It can be served in a sandwich or on lettuce, stuffed in a tomato or with chips or crackers. Enjoy!
