Chicken Salad from Leftovers

Often, at the end of the week, I find odds and ends from previous meals that I’ve consumed over the last few days in my refrigerator. These need to be eaten, but what can be done with them?

I’m a lover of salads, and raw fruits and vegetables. I’d rather eat a salad than soup most days, and can be pretty creative with the salads I make. Here is one such salad.

Ingredients:

(Serves 4+)

handful of romaine lettuce or kale

few leaves of baby spinach

handful of shredded cabbage

few slices of cucumber

1 tomato, chopped or diced

1 diced celery stalk

a sprinkling of shredded carrot

1 hard boiled egg, sliced

a little chicken, cut into bite size pieces

a few pineapple chunks

a few cantaloupe chunks

  1. Mix everything up.
  2. Enjoy!

Tips:

  • Many vegetables can be shredded, making them easier to eat.
  • Use a different kind of meat if chicken is not available, and any fruits and vegetables that look appetizing.

Serving Suggestions:

Happy Eating!

Shannon
