Whole Grain Chicken Salad

Whole Grain Chicken Salad

Introduction

Here is a wonderfully versital dish that can be served hot or cold. It will do just as well at a pic-nic as it will for a formal dinner. It's fairly quick and very easy to make. If you can boil water, you can do this.

This recipie can be changed in so many different ways...make it vegetarian by using water and no chicken. Add different veggies, olives, zucchini, carrots,peas, or what ever you happen to have on hand. You can add cheeses like feta or parmesean. Just use what ever you have and enjoy.
