Mama Nibbles: Recipe: Blueberry and Peach Chicken Salad Sandwich

Recipe: Blueberry and Peach Chicken Salad Sandwich


Bursting with fresh summer flavors!  This tasty, healthy and even kid friendly sandwich will delight your taste-buds.  Here in Michigan blueberries are in season full force thanks to the abundance of spring rain we received.  Don't miss out, you can find somewhere to pick them yourself or a great farmer's market to buy them at.  Check out http://www.pickyourown.org to find a place to pick in your area. We enjoy locally grown ingredients most, they always taste better and we love supporting local farmers.

Ingredients:

1 cup plain yogurt

1 Tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp lemon zest

1 tsp raspberry preserves

1/4 cup olive oil mayonnaise

1 Tbsp honey

2 Tbsp. milk

2 cups cooked, cubed chicken (I cook mine straight from frozen in a dish, smeared in a bit of butter then sprinkled with only garlic pepper and salt.  If you have not seasoned it with fresh pepper while cooking then feel free to add pepper into the dressing to taste)

1 cup chopped celery

1 cup fresh blueberries

1 ripe peach sliced (I leave the skin on)

1/2 cup julienne green apple (I leave the skin on)

1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional of course)


How to put this all together:

For the dressing, in a small bowl whisk together yogurt, lemon juice, lemon zest, raspberry preserves, mayonnaise, honey and milk. I like to add a sprinkle of kosher salt.

In a large bowl add the blue berries, peach slices, julienned apple, celery, chopped nuts and cubed chicken. Lightly toss these ingredients and then pour the dressing over the top and toss lightly to coat.

Now pile high onto your favorite bread or wrap. I know that croissants would be ideal for this but we didn't have any so we just used plain old buttermilk bread.


What the kids had to say:

7 year old daughter, "This sandwich is the yummiest and I don't even like blueberries!"

5 year old son, "This is yummy!" and then he gave it a thumbs up and kept on eating.
