Hey, hope all is well...crazy night here. Between high winds, sleet, snow and a "Skunk" spraying outside my bedroom window, I'm exhausted. Hopefully, today will be better. Today's recipe is an all time favorite in our home. The recipe can be prepared so many different ways when entertaining and great for family picnics. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS:  3 chicken breasts (cooked)
3 celery stalks (shaved)
1 golden delish apple (shaved)
1 cup red grapes (cut in half)
1 cup salted sunflower seeds
3 roman tomatoes (chopped)
3-4 sweet gherkin pickles (chopped)

Chop cooled chicken into small pieces. In a large bowl add all ingredients and mix with mayonnaise until creamy. Salt and pepper to taste. Using your favorite bread, spread one side with mayonnaise and other with honey Dijon mustard. Add chicken salad and serve with chips or use some of the twists below.

TWIST:  Shaving the celery and apple gives your salad a softer texture when serving. Substitute chicken with left over turkey at Thanksgiving.
Entertaining tips:
Serve on bib lettuce
Stuff green, red, or yellow bell peppers (just cut tops off and fill)
Serve on a decorative plate with tomato/basil crackers

NEXT WEEK:  "Kitchen Tips" I will be sharing some family tips passed down and a few of my own. Keep the questions coming. Have a blessed weekend, Cat
