Hi friends! One of my favorite things to make year round is chicken salad. Recently while making some there was some left over quinoa in the fridge and I though, ‘why not.’ So I added some into the mixture and it made the flavor even better! I decided to share my chicken salad recipe with you all as well. Hope you think it is as delicious as I do!
2 Cans of Chicken
1 Cup of Quinoa
2 Stalks of Celery
1 Tablespoon of Garlic
1 Small handful of Cranberries
1/2 Cup of Low Fat Mayonnaise
1/4 Cup of Relish
1 Teaspoon of Mustard
Step 1: Put one cup of quinoa in a medium sized bowl.
I like using the apple and cranberries for a dash of sweet flavor since the other vegetables are strong in their flavor and it compliments the quinoa.
Step 3: Open the cans of chicken with a can opener. Drain the juice from the chicken and then finely chop. below is what the ckicken should look like once chopped.
Step 5: Add the condiments to the other ingredients to the bowl.
Step 6: Mix all of the ingredients together.
Once made, let the chicken salad sit in the fridge for 30 minutes to help the mixture ‘gel’ and become even more delicious!!
What kind of chicken salad do you like to make? What else do you like to make quinoa with?
