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.

Cooking Hint:

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.
