Today I have a guest post for you from a wonderful blogger I met through the Bloggers Brags party we co-host on Monday's.
I want to thank Ali for inviting me to share my Waldorf-Inspired Chicken Salad with you on Home Crafts by Ali. I had fun creating this recipe, which is a refreshing take on a traditional Waldorf salad.
Waldorf-Inspired Chicken SaladThis salad is simple and perfect for a summer get-together. It isn't necessary to cook chicken specifically for this dish: leftover grilled or baked chicken would do just fine! I've suggested a preparation for the chicken, but any herb-based seasoning would pair well.
For the dressing:
1/3 cup of sour cream
3 tbsp of mayonnaise
2 tsp of apple cider vinegar
zest of 1/2 a lemon
3 tsp of chopped fresh dill
1 minced (medium/large) garlic glove
For the salad:
1 cup of slices red grapes
1/2 cup of sliced cucumber
1 chopped granny smith apple
2 chicken legs or breasts, skins removed
For the chicken seasoning:
A pinch of grated nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp dried or fresh thyme
- Combine all the ingredients for the dressing and refrigerate for at least half an hour.
- Season chicken with nutmeg, thyme, olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake at 375° until juices run clear.
- Let the chicken cool completely before chopping it into medium-small chunks.
- Slice the grapes and cucumber, and chop the apples.
- Combine chicken, grapes, cucumber, and apple. Mix with dressing. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Serve on toasted baguette and garnish with a sprig (or two!) of dill.
