Cranberry Chicken Salad

I’m going a little cranberry crazy after buying  massive bag of them (at least 10kg, at least) from Gorimas (my new favourite shop) for R39. I also got a huge bag of macadamia nuts for R17! Admittedly, I may have to be selective about which ones I eat.. but R17!!! I’m willing to risk it.

Cranberry Chicken SaladIngredients:

On a bed of mixed greens, tomato, and whatev…

  • Chopped chicken
  • A handful cranberries and pecans
  • Mixed seeds
  • A dash of cayenne pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • Low fat cottage cheese
  • 1 Tbsp Mayo
  • A smidgen of mustard, to taste

I think that’s it. I must start actually writing down recipes instead of winging them on the fly. But this was very yummy, with crunch from the seeds and nuts, the tang from the dressing, and the sweetness of the cranberries (wow, sounding like a food columnist there 🙂 ).

Make extra, as it also makes a yummy sandwich filling to slap onto some low GI bread for your lunch box.
