Autumnal Chicken Salad

One of my favorite options for leftover roast chicken is homemade chicken salad.  You can really tailor it to your mood and your refrigerator’s contents.  Curried chicken salad or chicken & grape salad, even chicken salad with oranges… anything goes!  I happened to have a smattering of random items in my pantry and decided to throw them together for a taste of autumn – today!  Easy and delicious.

Autumnal Chicken Salad

4 tbs mayonnaise
¼ tsp celery salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Pinch of dried mint
2 cups cooked chicken breast, cubed
½ cup walnuts, chopped
1 apple, cubed
½ cup dried cranberries
¼ cup leek, thinly sliced

In a large bowl mix the mayonnaise, celery salt, pepper and mint.  Add the chicken, walnuts, apple, cranberries and leek.  Mix until thoroughly combined.  Chill for an hour, then make a sandwich with good bread or, alternatively, serve atop romaine lettuce for a healthy lunch.
