Easy Leftover Waldorf-ish Salad


Today is Saturday and I have nowhere to go!  Yaaaaay!  Ok, I do have to go to the grocery store after I'm done typing this, but I actually don't have any plans today and I love it.  The next few months are crazy busy; all fun and exciting activities, but busy nonetheless.  So I really enjoy these days I get at home.

Matt had a 5K hike/adventure workout with a 60 pound backpack and this preggo opted out.  I'm still a little sore from the pull-ups, renegade push ups and running with 20 pound sandbag on my shoulders on Thursday :)  So, this morning was spent sleeping in, making breakfast, doing laundry, cleaning the bathrooms, cleaning the floors and now I'm enjoying my lunch. 

I thought I'd share this recipe I threw together using left-over bacon from breakfast, left-over chicken breast from dinner a couple nights ago, and an apple that desperately needed to be eaten.  It's a spin-off of Waldorf salad, but I do not have grapes or celery right now, and I'm pretty sure there is not typically bacon in Waldorf. This was SO easy to throw together and totally hit the spot.  Throw in whatever you have on hand that you think would taste yummy, but here is what I did...

What You Need:
  • 1 apple
  • 2 slices cooked bacon
  • 1 chicken breast (I used leftover thin-slice chicken that was seasoned with salt, pepper and onion and garlic seasoning before cooking on the stove in a skillet).
  • Chopped walnuts, about 1/2 cup
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice (I always have some jarred on hand in the fridge).
  • Salt and pepper to taste
What You Do: 
  1. Rough chop apple, bacon, chicken, and walnuts and place in a bowl.
  2. In a separate small bowl (I used a coffee mug) combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
  3. Add dressing to chopped ingredients, mix to combine.
Now I'm off the the grocery store with food in my belly. 
A hungry, pregnant woman in a grocery store is a dangerous thing!
