Well, chicken salad can be anything but soggy when you add in a few veggies that not only add nutrients but increase the crunchiness and fiber.
Kids can help with the chopping and grating of vegetables and become part of the kitchen crew – which might also tempt them to try something new.
Here is a recipe for Crunchy Chicken Salad taken from Cooking Around the Calendar with Kids by Amy Houts. It is a perfect spring-time recipe, especially if using new green onions and lettuce just out of the garden.
Crunchy Chicken Salad
Children can help with chopping celery, grating carrots, and perhaps cutting up the onion. Mix vegetables with chicken and mayonnaise.
Just before serving, mix in the shoestring potatoes. Serve on lettuce leaf.
Yield: 4 servings
