You will need:

  • several chicken breasts, poached and shredded (or leftover rotisserie chicken, roasted chicken, etc.)

It’s this simple:

  1. In a bowl, put a dollop of mayonnaise and whisk with orange juice until it makes a nice dressing.

  3. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Throw in some red seedless grapes. Stir.
  5. Refrigerate until you need it.
  6. Top a green salad with the chicken salad.
  7. Sprinkle pine nuts on top.

    So jealous. I have a few green ones out there now. And I also have a small green pepper (so cute!) I did 2 raised bed gardens this year and so far I am loving them. They are about 20 inches high, so they help out with easy weeding and are less taxing on my back/knees.

    We are hoping to move into 5 raised bed gardens next year, around our fire pit and also add a small chicken coop in the back of the yard. If our yard was a little bigger we'd get bees, but with the 4 kiddos we feel its better to not have them for now. :)
