Salad DAYS - CATEGORY News update: TITLE

With spring just days away, what I like to call “shower and celebration” season is almost upon us. So many bridal showers, baby showers and graduation parties happen when the weather warms up. Today I’ve got a recipe that would be perfect for any of those, or as a light supper or for lunch all week long!

I love chicken salad, and have quite a few different variations I make. Chicken salad makes a great meal on a hot day when you’re hungry but don’t want anything heavy. Plus, I have the leftovers for lunch for a few days after. Recipes that serve more than one purpose are always a good idea!

This one has a little extra flavor from the Dijon, and serving it in the lettuce “cups” makes it even fresher and lighter. If you want to make it for a party, you can plate them up like this or serve the salad in a big bowl, with the lettuce on a big platter, and let your guests fill their own!

Cook's Note

In my grocery store, the bibb lettuce is also marked “living lettuce” and has the roots still attached. Any lettuce will work, but I like the shapes of these leaves the best., Site News current daily serving News today and the latest news about politics until News lifestyle and sport.
