Crunchy Chicken Salad

Crunchy Chicken Salad

I look forward to our Bountiful Basket. In case you are wondering, Bountiful Baskets is a food co-op that is available in many (but not all) states. We pool our money to get the best deals on fresh fruits and vegetables and cut out the middleman. We get a basket once or twice a month. I so look forward to those days. This past weekend my friend John picked up my basket and brought it over. It was exciting going through it to see all the delicious treasures held inside. Once I take inventory I start planning!
There were some beautiful Jonagold Apples in the box this week. I also happened to have some leftover chicken in the fridge. This was a perfect setup for chicken salad! I love chicken salad. I like mine crunchy with a little sweet and a little savory.

2 C Shredded Chicken, Chopped
1/2 C Red Onion, Chopped
1 Jonagold Apple*, Chopped
1 Celery Stalk, Sliced
1/2 C Roasted Cashews, Chopped
1 C Mayonnaise
1/2 C Parmesan Cheese, Grated
1/2 TSP Garlic Powder
Salt & Pepper to Taste

You need 2 mixing bowls for this recipe. In the first bowl place the first 5 ingredients. In the second bowl places the remaining ingredients. Mix together the dressing ingredients and then add to your meat and veggies. Refrigerate at least one hour before serving.

*Note: Use your favorite apple variety.
