MONDAY RECIPE POST - Cranberry Pecan Chicken Salad - serves 6

I found the recipe at this blog called, Life Currents.  It is another great looking food blog and I shall be visiting it again for more recipes.

Cranberry Pecan Chicken Salad - serves 6 

Calories: 421 (approximately)


3 cups cooked, shredded chicken
3/4 cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1/2 cup dried, sweetened cranberries
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon white pepper

Combine all the ingredients.

mixing well with the mayonnaise.  
Refrigerate for an hour to allow flavors to combine.

Serve chilled.
What did I think of this recipe?  Excellent, very tasty.  I used a one-cup measure to put the salad on top my serving plate, first adding a few lettuce leaves.  It was a lovely dinner last night. 

Thank you for looking and have a great week.

  10. That sounds like a great meal for a luncheon party with the ladies. I love the whole concept. I suppose you could make it with chilled shrimp, too. Your dish looks very pretty.

  12. I'd skip the pecans in favour of something else. Pecans are the only nut I don't care for.
