Basic Chicken Salad

Source: Whole Foods for the Whole Family
Date tried: February 1, 2018
Yield: 18 miniature servings
Time needed: a few minutes, but make well ahead to allow time to chill

The book gives a recipe for cream puff miniatures and this recipe will fill 18 of them. But I decided not to attempt the cream puffs and served the salad on bagels instead. This recipe would make enough for 8 generously filled bagels. And it is a very good chicken salad.

Boston Salad

Source: 12 Months of Monastery Salads
Date tried: January 11, 2016
Yield: 6-8 servings
Time needed: 20-30 minutes

I love Boston lettuce and was pleased this year to find some available in January—though in a high-priced “living salad” container. Usually I only find it in the summertime. Ah well, for a new recipe, I decided to try it, especially as I tend not to buy oranges in the summer when we have so much local fruit readily available.

This is a lovely salad and I am especially impressed with the dressing. Since it is best served at room temperature, no extra time needs to be added for chilling.
