Summer Camp Day 10: Share your favorite recipe
I may have a problem here. I have a hard time following recipes as written. I feel they are more of a guideline. I will usually start with the basics and modify the recipe to my tastes. It usually does not come out much like what was originally written.
I will try to share something that I like to make, though. I will try to write it so that others can follow it, but I may get the measurements wrong. This particular recipe is not written down. I usually put enough enough of each ingredient until it looks right.
If the measurements I share do not look good to you, put as much or as little in as you want.
Rosemary chicken salad
(This has gotten rave reviews at every function I bring it to. It looks pretty and tastes fantastic.)
1 rotisserie chicken (preferably herb flavored, but any flavor will work.)
1 1/2 cups red grapes, halved
1 cup celery, diced
juice from 1 lemon
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp fresh rosemary (Must use fresh rosemary! Dried rosemary does not come out nearly as good.
1 Tbsp kosher salt (or to taste)
1/2 tbsp fresh ground pepper (to taste)
(Optional: Toasted almonds or walnuts)
Remove chicken meat from rotisserie chicken. Discard skin and bone
Mix all ingredients together, and let marinate for at least an hour.
