Sonoma Chicken Salad

Hello there! It has clearly been quite a while since I have posted anything on my little site, but I've had a lot going on. The past few months have been busy for us with new jobs, a new house, and a new baby on the way!

Needless to say, my schedule has been busy and my appetite has been off, so my posting was...non-existant. I've been eating a lot of standard, simple things (chicken, chili, pork, veggies, rice) and being in between kitchens, I didn't quite have the means to be inspired or the equipment to try anything new.

I guess that all changed the other day when the temperature finally stayed above 50 degrees for more than one minute. I found myself mashing up two of my favorite chicken salad recipes: Whole Foods with grapes and pecans and Ukrop's classic tarragon chicken salad.

I picked up about a pound of shredded, cooked chicken and mixed it together with Duke's mayonnaise, sliced celery, sliced grapes, chopped tarragon, and a little bit of mustard.

This chicken salad is fabulous on a salad, on a cracker, on a sandwich, or alone!

So while I will continue to have a lot going on this year, my posts are probably to be sporadic and rather inconsistent. But I still plan to pop on here when the time is right and when I have something worthwhile to share - like a chicken salad mashup, obviously.
