Recipes, Recipes, Recipes

Do you remember my previous posts (here and here) about our church's Mother Daughter Luncheon? It was a ton of fun and the food was so yummy! My friend, Brett, who was in charge of the food, graciously shared her recipes for some of the salads we had at the luncheon. I just wish I had taken pictures of the food- I guess you'll just have to trust me when I tell you that it was amazing!

Healthy Chicken Salad
(tuna may also be used)
1 lg. can chopped cooked chicken (or 2 5-oz cans tuna), drained
8 sm radishes, thinly sliced
2 stalks celery, sliced

1 Tb olive oil
1/4 tsp salt & pepper
Combine & chill.
