Chicken Salad Salad

Confusing name, but oh so good for you AND it tastes great! I came up with this recipe after having a turkey sandwich here in Fort Davis that had cranberries in it. Wow... my taste buds stood up and saluted Miss Nell over at Nell's Coffee Shop. So, while scrounging around in my cupboards for something quick, easy and healthy, I created this dish.

I used Flax Seed in this and it can be omitted, but why? It really has no flavor and it blends well. It also helps to thicken it up in case you put in too much liquid. The best part, its super healthy for you. The chicken salad is wet enough to not need any extra dressing.

This recipe makes 1 1/2 servings.

1 can Chicken
2 tbsp Miracle Whip (or generic Whipped Salad Dressing is fine)
1 tsp Spicy Brown Mustard
1 tbsp Flax Seed
1/4 - 1/2 cup Cranberries, dried
1 cup Spinach, fresh
4 Grape Tomatoes, cut in half
3-4 Strawberries, quartered
Mozzarella, shredded

1) In small bowl blend together first 5 ingredients, set aside.

2) On salad plate place spinach in center. Put chicken salad right in the middle. Surround it with tomatoes and strawberries, then sprinkle entire salad with cheese.
