SASSY CHICKEN SALAD
Makes 6 servings. Preparation time: 20 minutes
1 (10 ounce) can RED GOLD® DICED TOMATOES & GREEN CHILIES, drained
½ cup light mayonnaise
1 tablespoon honey
2 cups chunked cooked chicken breast
1 cup thinly sliced celery
1 cup grapes, halved
⅓ cup chopped toasted pecans
In a medium bowl, combine RED GOLD® DICED TOMATOES & GREEN CHILIES, mayonnaise and honey. Stir in chicken, celery, grapes and pecans.
Cover and chill. Maybe served in hollowed out melons, avocados or papayas. Also makes a great sandwich when served on a Croissant.
To toast pecans, bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350o oven for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Another option is to toast them in the microwave. Place a single layer on a microwave safe plate and cook on high for 2 minutes. Stir and cook for 1 more minute.
