We love grapes as snacks but have you tried them mixed in with chicken salad? Makes a fantastic, healthy lunch (and quick too if you use a BBQ chook) – and looks so cute served in witlof leaves!
Ingredients – serves 8
Ingredients 1 cup red grapes, halved
1 cup BBQ chicken meat
40 grams blue cheese, crumbled
¼ cup roasted walnuts
1 tablespoon chives, roughly chopped
½ tablespoon of honey
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Salt and cracked pepper to taste
2 witlof leaves washed, seperated and trimmed (should have about 18 usable leaves)
1. To make the dressing, whisk together the honey, vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper and set aside.
2. Place the witlof leaves on a platter or large tray.
3. Divide a little chicken meat evenly between the leaves, then divide the crumbled blue cheese, chives, walnuts and top with a tablespoon of grape halves.
4. Drizzle ‘bites’ with dressing and serve immediately.
Tip: Keep everything separate and compile when ready to eat.
