Well after 9 long months our sweet baby Olivia is here!! I am beyond thrilled and so happy to have another girl, now we have 3!! I have been saving up pictures and recipes to share so hopefully I won't fall behind, but I know that after we get back into the swing of things this blog will be hoppin'! So here is a pic of the cutest babe and a quick recipe to make on the next sunny day you have!!
Cranberry-Orange Chicken Salad Sammies(from Our Best Bites)
2 cups cooked chicken, chopped into bite size
1 cup celery
1/3 cup chopped green onions
Zest of 1 medium orange
1/2 cup craisens
1/2 cup light mayo
1 teaspoon spicy brown mustard or coarse grain mustard
2 tablespoons jellied cranberry sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Croissants or rolls
1. In a medium bowl, combine chicken, celery, green onions, orange zest and craisins.
2. In a separate, smaller bowl whisk together mayo, mustard, cranberry sauce, salt and black pepper. Add the chicken mixture and toss to fully combine. *This salad is best if refrigerated for several hours before serving.
3. Just before serving, add the toasted pecans/walnuts. Serve on toasted buns (with a touch more mayo if desired)and with a leaf of lettuce.
* Combine this with fruit salad and some veggies for dipping and you are set!
