This is a scrumptious chicken salad recipe. Light yet hardy. I do not measure things. But, I will guesstimate for you. Make it to your liking. If you want more or less of something, go for it!

Ingredients: 4 cups Organic/free range cooked chicken breasts shredded/diced –  3 cups Green and red grapes sliced in half – 1/2 cup cucumbers diced – 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds (unable to find in town so not in this picture :{ – 2 plain Greek Yogurts(see pic)- 1-to 2 tablespoons Poppy Seeds to your liking- 1 tablespoon Paprika- Course sea salt to taste. Mix all prepared ingredients together, season slowly and taste as you go. You don’t want to over do it. Mine always turns out perfect, but you can add more or less yogurt depending on the consistency of salad you would like.

** TOPPERS: roasted/smoked almonds- avocado slices**only add these on top of each serving, or you will end up with soggy nuts and black avocado throughout your salad. Part of cooking is pleasing the eyes as well as the pallet :}

Serving Ideas: fill a wrap or soft tortilla – spoon onto romaine or a nice buttery lettuce – stuff an avocado – stuff a tomato – on your favorite bread

Lay the side of your chef knife on top of the Almonds, give it a good smack with the side of your hand(similar to peeling garlic) and wallah! (before and after in picture above)Use the blade to scoop them into your bowl.
