chicken, special sauce, grapes, almonds- oy!
i searched in vain for a recipe but alas- i had to come up with my own.
i got as close as i could- i simply cannot figure out their super secret sauce.
i kind of eyeballed everything- but the below is my best guess at the amounts used.
Napa Chicken Salad
2 cups cooked chicken (shredded or cubed- i roasted a chicken the day before)
1/2 heavy cup of mayo
1 heavy spoonful of Miracle Whip (i love me the whip- but you can skip it)
3 tblsp of honey
3 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 cup halved grapes
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup slivered/sliced almonds
1 tsp poppy seeds
salt & pepper to taste
good hearty bread slices
In a large bowl- whisk/stir together the mayo, MW, honey, vinegar, poppy seeds, salt & pepper.
chop the chicken/fruits/veggies/nuts (i used already slivered almonds. makes life easier)
i like my celery tiny & my grapes halved. my chicken is mostly shredded with a few chunks here & there.
toss the chicken into the mayo mix & stir it up- then tthrow in the rest & stir/fold it all together.
gently now- you don't want to smash the grapes!
p.s. you can adjust the mayo amount. initially my salad was a bit dry which i why i added the scoop of Miracle Whip. go with what you like!
