In my original blog I just intermingled the recipes I mentioned in the blog. Many found this hard to follow. So in an effort to make the blogs more user friendly I am posting all the recipes and how to's for all the blogs here. I hope you like this new format. -Jan `

     1/2           cup  cooked chicken -- diced

     1/2           cup  red grapes -- halved OR dried fruit such as raisins or crasins

     1/4           cup  red onion -- diced

     1/4           cup  celery -- diced

     1/4           cup  cheese -- diced, optional

     1/4           cup  pecans -- chopped, optional


Mix all together well and serve cold either as a salad, or on a sandwich made with whole grain bread or in a whole grain wrap.



  "A great use for leftover roasted or rotissoire chicken, the sweetness of the fruit gives a whole new aspect to plain old chicken salad."
