Nutty Chicken Salad
This salad is substantial enough for a light main dish. It's full of heart-protective nuts and seeds, which also increase the fiber. Serve with whole-grain bread or rolls and a glass of fruit juice.
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/4 cup sunflower oil
2 teaspoons poppy seeds
1 (10 ounce) can chunk white chicken, drained and broken into chunks
1/2 cup celery, diced 1/4″
3 green onions with 2″ of green tops, sliced
1/4 cup sesame seeds, toasted
1/3 cup walnut halves, toasted
2 cups Romaine lettuce, chopped
In small bowl, whisk together sugar, paprika, mustard, salt, wine vinegar, oil, and poppy seeds. Set aside. In large bowl, mix together chicken, celery, and green onions. Pour dressing over chicken mixture and toss gently to mix. Refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours. At serving time, mix chicken mixture with sesame seeds, walnuts, and lettuce.
