Day of dusk
All day long it seemed to be on the edge of darkness. It was rainy, windy and cold. I even pulled out my lightweight winter coat. It was so dark that I couldn’t take pictures of the new bracelet that I just finished. Next on my to do list is a light box.
So, since I don’t have any photos to share I thought I’d post a recipe that’s recently been rocking my world. It’s from Better Homes and Gardens but I’ve mixed it up enough to make it mine.
Crunchy Chicken and Fruit Salad
2 chicken breasts cooked and torn into bite-sized chunks, I bake the chicken then throw it into the freezer to cool while I prepare the rest of the salad
1/3 cup light mayonnaise
1 apple cored and chopped
1 5-oz. bag of baby lettuce
1 avocado chopped
handful of pecan halves
Squeeze the juice from one orange. Stir just enough into the mayo to make dressing consistency. If I only have one orange on hand I’ve used bottled orange juice with the same result. Season with black pepper and salt. Peel and section remaining oranges.
In a bowl place greens, chicken, apples, oranges and avocado. Toss in pecans. Drizzle dressing. So freakin’ good!
