Honey Dijon Chicken Salad

Purchasing a rotisserie chicken is a good way to limit your time in the kitchen on warm summer evenings.  I’m a dark meat kinda gal and the legs go quick.  I like to use the drier meat around the breastbone in soups and salads.   I served this chicken salad on red leaf lettuce, though it would work in a sandwich or wrap as well.

Honey Dijon Chicken Salad

1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 small clove garlic, pressed
1 pinch salt and pepper
1 pinch smoked paprika
1 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken breast
1 cup red grapes, halved
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 green onion, sliced
handful slivered almonds, toasted

Make dressing by whisking together mayo, honey, mustard, vinegar, garlic, salt, pepper and paprika.  Set aside.  Use a small mixing bowl to combine chicken, grapes, celery and green onion.  Drizzle dressing over the salad ingredients and mix well.  Top with almonds.

Makes 2 servings.
