Pea Patch

We've been enjoying our neighborhood pea patch at Country Village.  These folks have done an amazing job planting such sweet goodies for us to gaze at.  We've watched them grow and grow these last couple months, a little of everything, veggies, fruits, herbs, in all colors shapes and sizes.

Curried Chicken Salad Pita



Curried Chicken Salad Pita

 

This is a fast, easy, and filling salad that uses up leftover rotisserie chicken, and can be eaten on a bed of lettuce or stuffed into pita pockets.  The cool grapes make it a perfect light meal for late summer, with the curry powder adding a unique and warm flavor.  I really eyeball this salad as I’m making it, so follow the directions loosely – if you want more grapes, add them!  Less dressing, more nuts, etc etc.  Enjoy!

 

¼ cup Low-Fat Mayo (regular is fine too)

1 tsp Curry Powder

2 tsp Water

1 cup Chopped Cooked Chicken

¾ cup Chopped Braeburn Apple (or any other tart-ish apple)

1/3 cup Celery, diced small

1 cup Red Grapes, halved

¼ cup Slivered Almonds, toasted

Salt, to taste

 

For serving:

Green Leaf Lettuce

Whole Wheat Pita Pockets

1.      Whisk together the first three ingredients to make the dressing.

2.      Toss together remaining ingredients, then stir in the dressing.  If not serving right away, wait to add the almonds so they don’t get soggy.

3.      To serve, line a pita pocket half with a large leaf of lettuce, and stuff with a half cup or so of chicken salad.  Eat and enjoy!
