Spread the peanut butter (also amazing with Almond butter) on each slice then sprinkle the toppings. Drizzle some honey for extra sweetness!  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family does!

Almond grape chicken salad recipeThis is one of my families favorites.   I made it last night for dinner with the grapes I got for only $1.29 per lb at Albertsons.  I also made some Grape Salsa.

Almond Chicken Salad with Grapes Recipe

  • 1 pound Diced Cooked Chicken Breast
  • 3 green onions diced
  • 1 cup red or green grapes halved
  • 3 stalks of celery diced small
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

You can cook the chicken breast any way you want.  But I prefer to roast it in the oven or do a quick boil…. but if I boil it I always add a little onion, celery, and garlic to the water.  Gives it a much better flavor.

Once the chicken is cooked thru, cooking time will vary on size of breast. I normally cook them 25-35 minutes.  Take them out, and let them rest on a cutting board to cool.

Once they have cooled down some (normally 10 minutes) chop them into small bite sized pieces. Put them into the refrigerator to cool even more.

Chop your veggies, add all the ingredients in a bowl.

Salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!

Healthy Spring Recipes ~ TULIP TOMATOES

Do you need something pretty for  Mothers Day Brunch, or a Garden Party?  These beautiful tulip tomatoes serve as both a eye catching table decor and a yummy veggie tray at the same time.  I love the colors and how fresh and healthy they look, almost to pretty to eat. To make a mixed bouquet you could use some yellow grape tomatoes too. These look great on a white serving tray.

Yields: 15 tulips, Ready in 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 15 Large Cherry Tomatoes
  • 16 stalks of chives
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • Salt and pepper

Directions:

1. With stem side down, cut a cross in the top of each cherry tomato (about 3?4 down the tomato).

2. Using a spoon (grapefruit spoon works very well) to gently scrape out the tomato seeds.

3. Take a grilling skewer or toothpick and make a hole where the stem currently is. You may need to twist the skewer in a circle a few times to make room for the chive to fit through.

4. Finely chop or grate cucumber.

5. Mix cream cheese, cucumber and basil in a bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste.

6. Add a teaspoon of cream cheese mixture into each tomato tulip (adjust depending on size of tomatoes).

7. Insert a chive into the hole at the bottom of each tomato.

8. Use a damp paper towel to clean any excess cream cheese filling from outside of tomatoes.

9. Prepare the tulip bouquet on a large plate or platter. Use the extra chive stalk to wrap around the tulip stems to complete the bouquet.
