Recipe: Fruity Chicken Salad

You will need:

1.5lbs chicken breast, cooked (I chopped and boiled mine)
1-3 cups peeled chopped apples
1-3 cups seedless red grapes, halved
1-3 cups celery, chopped fine
The mix should have 5-6 cups total of produce, so you choose which. The recipes call for 3c apples and 3c grapes. I made mine with only 2c grapes because that many grapes did not sound good to me. So I had 5 cups total. But I think next time I might do 2c apples, 2c grapes and 1c celery. Moving on.
1/3 cup fat free sour cream
1T low-fat mayo
1T Dijon mustard
1/4 cup chopped nuts, walnuts recommended
Juice of 1 lime or 1-2T prepared lime juice

Toss the apples and lime juice together in a large bowl (to prevent browning). Add in the grapes (and celery if desired). In a separate small bowl blend together mayo, sour cream and mustard. Mix into fruit, coating well. Take cooked chicken and shred or chop it. Fold nuts and chicken into fruit mixture, coating well.

If divided into 6 servings (with 3c apple 2c grape) it would be 250 cal/serving.

Serve with crackers, on a salad, on a sandwich or in a wrap. We ate them on Flat Out! Sun dried Tomato wraps.
