Chicken Apple Salad & Fruit and Cheese Plate

Fruit and Cheese Salad

 
Don’t have time to prepare a healthful meal?

When this happens to me, I surfed my frig and pantry to see what I can come up with. 

I decided to take the fruit and cheese from the frig and created a fruit and cheese platter.  I simply added a thread of olive oil on the mozzarella cheese and placed fruit around it on a plate. It took only a few minutes to assemble this recipe.

Chicken and Apple Salad

I purchase a rotisserie chicken every week and make many dishes without having to take the time to bake the chicken myself.  I decided to make Chicken salad, so I  cut up the rotisserie chicken into small cubes and I added toasted pecans, 1 apple with skin removed and cubed, shredded carrots and broccoli from a bag, a handful of golden raisins, and 2 spring onions. I took some mayo from the frig, added some freshly squeezed lemon juice and paprika and mixed it well with the chicken salad.  I placed the chicken salad over a bed of baby arugula, and frisée lettuce. I added some sliced cucumbers, baby yellow peppers, tomatoes, grain salad on each corner of the plate. For the salad dressing, I simply poured a few treads of unfiltered extra virgin olive oil and threads of pear flavored balsamic vinegar of the greens.  The chicken salad recipe took about 10 minutes to make from ingredients I already had in my frig and pantry.

I love it when I can come up with tasty dishes that do not require much time at all and are also healthful to eat.
