Ingredients

    1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and diced
    1/2 c. walnut pieces, toasted and chopped
    1/2 c. olive oil mayonnaise
    1/2 c. red seedless grapes, quartered
    1/4 c. red onion, finely chopped
    1/4 cup celery, finely chopped
    Salt & pepper to taste (I used 1/2 & 1/4 tsp, respectively)

Tips

I use Chef Meg's recipe for poached chicken for the chicken in this recipe: http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=2147037

To toast the walnuts, toss them in a non-stick saute pan over medium-low heat until fragrant. They can burn easily, so take care and shake the pan frequently!


Directions

Mix all ingredients together and serve on a bed of mixed salad greens or in half a pita pocket.

Toss in a bit of curry, dill or other seasonings of your choice to change up the flavor profile!

Makes approximately 5, 1/2-cup servings.
