Cherry Almond Chicken Salad

Apr 12, 2014

Last summer we spent a few days with our dear friends at their parent's lake home in Iowa.  Not only was our time together food for my soul but my friend, Nealy, made some of the most amazing food for our bellies. It never ceases to amazing me how so many of my favorite memories are made around the table.

One of the recipes she made for lunch is below. It's perfect for a spring/summer lunch or an easy light dinner option.

Enjoy!

Cherry Almond Chicken Salad

Ingredients
4 Chicken Breasts
1 cup Rotini Pasta, cooked
1 cup dried cherries
1 cup whole almonds
1/2 bunch green onions, finely chopped
Celery, chopped (optional)
Brianna's Poppyseed dressing
1/3 cup mayo

Directions
Season chicken with salt & pepper.  Bake (or grill) and dice chicken.  Combine ingredients and serve over leaves of lettuce.  I like to serve it with tortilla chips.

Steph, how much do the salad dressing do you put on this? Is it just to taste per person? Or do you combine an arbitrary amount with everything? Can't wait to eat this!
