fabulous summer meal: chicken salad sandwiches & pasta salad

do you know what i love? food. and as a stay at home wife who has to make a meal
i am constantly trying to find easy recipes. this is a time-honored favorite for most everyone but pretty new to me. you see, i've been a pretty picky eater up to lately. so i've been eating these two dishes for easily, less then 6 months. love love love them. enjoy

chicken salad sandwich

2 chicken breasts - cooked & shredded
1/4 red onion - finely diced
grapes to taste - quartered
celery to taste - chopped
1/4 cup miracles whip
1/4 cup mayo
1 Tb dijon mustard
lawry's salt to taste
my favorite way to cook chicken breasts - pop in frozen with a little water, cook on high for a few hours- magic

combine onion, grapes, celery, and chicken in bowl. toss with lawry's salt [i give one good sprinkle over it all  but i love salt]. toss with miracle whip, mayo, and dijon. if you don't like mayo or miracle, just use more of what you love. i prefer the whip but i like the tang the combination of the two makes. serve on a lettuce crescent roll.

rachelle's famous pasta salad

1 box of tri-colored rotini noodles, or as my mom calls them "cute noodles"
green onion to taste - finely diced
tomatoes - diced into bite sized pieces
cucumber - peeled and quartered
asparagus - 1" cut off bottom, steamed, and sectioned
*any other vegetable you love

you prob won't have this on hand but it's def worth the trip to the store

1/2 cup miracle whip
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup rice vinegar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 Tbs cavender's greek seasoning

landon texting his gfs - such a techno wizard already - notice the bag of pampers in the background? bought clearance for $2! they're size one so they'll make a great diaper cake, go me!

the original
whip thoroughly [i use a hand mixer]. chill and smother your healthy meal.

I'm trying the pasta salad today! It better be good, or you're in big trouble! :)

P.S. Glad you guys went to the nature sanctuary! Once it cools off, I think we might go again.
