Carol's Chicken Mushroom Grape Salad with Walnuts

Submitted by: CAROLFAITHWALKR
Carol's Chicken Mushroom Grape Salad with Walnuts

Introduction

When chicken goes on sale I buy in bulk and batchcook it in the crockpot or oven, with rosemary & thyme; then debone and freeze the meat in recipe-sized portions. When grapes go on sale, I make this salad! The rosemary & thyme add a lovely flavor to future dishes such as this salad. This recipe is also a great way to use up some of that frozen turkey meat leftover from Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Red & purple grapes instead of green for better nutrition, reservatrol.
Walnuts instead of almonds for omega 3's, but either are good.
Turmeric for it's anti-inflamation and anti-cancer properties.

My favorite way to serve it is chilled overnight, eaten on a bed of shredded Romaine the next day.
