Make enough for tomorrow’s lunch—you can also include fresh corn, Italian chicken sausage, or chopped lettuce. The dressing is the key here.
- 3 cups cooked chicken or turkey (approximately 1 whole breast)
- 1 red, unpeeled apple, chopped finely
- 4 stalks celery, chopped
- 4 stalks green onions, chopped
- 1 lemon, grated peel
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 2 tsp poppy seeds
- 1 Tbs honey
- 1 Tbs grainy mustard
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 12 dried apricots, cut into quarters
- 1/2 head leafy lettuce
- If the chicken is not already cooked, poach it gently in a little water while you chop and mix everything else. When it's cooked through, chop it.
- Finely grate the peel of a fresh lemon into a large bowl, then juice the lemon into the same bowl. Remember to grate the peel first.
- Add poppy seeds, mustard, honey, oil, and apricots to the bowl, then let apricots soften for at least 15 minutes in this dressing (less if apricots are fresh).
- Add the chicken, apple, celery, and green onions and mix well. Serve on a bed of lettuce.
