This recipe is perfect as a light Spring or Summer meal, and use low-fat mayo to lighten it even further.
You will need:
4 cups diced, cooked chicken
1 – 15 oz. can Pineapple Chunks (drained)
1 cup chopped celery
1 – 22 oz. can mandarin oranges (drained)
½ cup chopped green pepper
2 Tablespoons grated onion
1 cup mayo
1 Tablespoon prepared mustard
1 – 5 oz. can chow mein noodles
½ cup black olives
Combine chicken, celery, olives, pepper & onion. Blend mayo & mustard. Toss gently with chicken mixture, cover & chill for several hours.
Before serving, add pineapple, mandarin oranges & noodles. I purchase 2 different sizes of chow-mein noodles, mixing the larger ones into the salad and sprinkling the new miniature version on top of the salad before serving.
Serve in lettuce-lined bowl.
