It’s still February, but, in south Texas it’s already hit 80 degrees and feels like spring, so, it’s got me in the mood for a cool, mouthwateringly delicious salad! This Mandarin Chicken Salad with Grapes and Yogurt Dijon Dressing is perfect for a light, healthy, satisfying lunch!
I’m revisiting my Bean Salad with Ham recipe post from a couple of years ago and updating it with much needed new photos! Actually, there was just one photo, taken in the prep stage…because when I added the mayo, most of it was eaten before I could take any more! Anyway, it’s the same delicious salad, perfect for hot days like we’re having right now, although we did have a cool front come through which resulted in the temps dropping to the high 90’s. 🙂 This is one of those delightful, tried and true family recipes. It was my Grandmother’s creation; my Mom made it when I was growing up and still does, and I make it every summer as well. This old recipe is alive and well, and still very much loved. My parents always enjoyed the salad with the buttery Townhouse or Club crackers, but, it’s equally tasty scooping it up with blue corn tortilla chips!
