Sublime Lime

Recently, on two separate occasions two different friends have mentioned how using lime had added that je ne sais quoi to a dish they’d created. So, given their inspiration I concocted this chicken salad recipe in their honor and we will be enjoying it today for lunch.

Sara’s Grilled Somewhat Healthful Chicken Salad

2 grilled chicken breasts (I always grill more chicken than I need for this purpose alone)
½ onion chopped
2 stalks celery chopped
Hardy handful of walnuts


About 1/3 cup Greek yogurt
Heaping T of mayo
Some sea salt
Some ground pepper
A couple shakes of dried tarragon
½ lime

Whisk all the ingredients up—taste and correct to your liking

I chopped up some romaine and dressed it lightly with olive oil and champagne vinegar and used that for a bed for the chicken salad.

Gently fold dressing into the other ingredients. Refrigerate to let the flavors mingle. Enjoy with a nice glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Drinking at lunch?? Remember, it’s always 5’clock somewhere!
