This chicken salad recipe is scrumptious and comforting yet you can feel virtuous knowing you are eating something utterly healthy as well. I love salads that are complete meals in themselves with a good serving of protein. This is one of those.
The vegetable garden is brimming with food so I’m always looking for new ways to use it up. I am so pleased to say that we are now 100% self sufficient in vegetables, berries, citrus and eggs. We buy meat and dairy products. We did think about milking the cow again but…..nahhh…we do enough already. We did it once and it was fun for a while. But it’s a big commitment. I like to have the freedom to go away on adventures or even sleep in occasionally. Completely decadent I know, but you cannot do that when you have a dairy cow with a full udder waiting for you.
Becoming completely self sufficient as one family is a tall order. And really quite a difficult and lonely task. I prefer to support other farms and businesses and so we buy milk as locally as possible – from a dairy farm on the next mountain over – and focus on growing our own luscious organic produce. Because that’s what we love to do.
That way everyone is happy – and isn’t that what we are all trying so hard to be?
This would also make a yummy sandwhich filling. We haven’t had a chance to try it on sandwiches because Ian and I scoffed the lot for lunch today. Maybe I’ll make some more tomorrow.
