The heat has been turned up here in California, and that means BBQ and pool weather (Sorry all you UK peeps. I wish I could send you some sun!). Also lighter and cooler meals from the kitchen. I had some leftover BBQ chicken and made one of my favorite salads for lunch.
Chopped cooked chicken
red or green grapes, sliced in half
salt and pepper
Mix all of the above to your taste. Don't skip the tarragon!! It really adds a lot to this dish.
I sprinkled my salad with a few sliced almonds, and served on red leaf lettuce.
I was first served this at a business luncheon years ago (seems another lifetime now), and remember thinking, chicken and grapes? Am I going to want fruit and chicken in my mouth together at the same time?
It was really good!
Since then I have found a similar recipe in Barefoot Contessa at Home. There are a lot of other delicious salads in this book as well.
Okay, onto the sewing. Hexies that is. Seems I can't stop making these cute little guys, but haven't really gathered enough for a quilt, because I keep sticking them onto things. Like dishtowels.
Linking up with Debbie at Tuesday at the Summer Table.
