Pecan Chicken Salad

By startwynles58

  • 1/4 cup pecan halves

  • I/4 cup celery, chopped thin

  • 1/2 broiled (or grilled) chicken breast, sliced in a few thin strips then cut into bite size for a small mouth pieces)

  • 6 red or purple seedless grapes, halved

  • 10 blueberries

  • 1/4 cup olive oil mayonnaise(or just the kind you want to use)

  • A dozen Spinach leaves

  • A dozen romaine lettuce leaves

  • fresh ground pepper(I used a mix of colors of pepper corns-black red, pink, green)

  • dash of sea salt (to taste)

  1. Mix all ingredients except the spinach and the Romaine lettuce together in a chilled bowl. On a couple of plates, divide up the spinach and Romaine lettuce between them arranged attractively, and then divide the mixture in the bowl in two and place on top of the lettuce/spinach. Serve with one Rye Wasa Cracker each.

since salt is to taste only it depends on the person-I do not use any myself.
This can also be eaten as a sandwich on a good whole grain bread--I cut one piece in half and have it rather than the rye wasa cracker some times.

I have made this salad several times since finding the recipe. Everyone who has eaten it has enjoyed it.

This sounds just wonderful. I especially like using the spinach and Romaine Lettuce. This recipe also gives us enough of this to eat per serving that we can use it as a meal.
