At this point, I resisted the temptation to get on the scale and see if I, too, weighed exactly one ounce. Best not to press my luck?You know I had to measure out exactly one ounce of celery. Ditto the sunflower seeds. The chicken? Eight ounces. Since I had it out already, I figured I'd chop everything with the food processor. I'd previously chopped dates for these muffins, and I estimate there was about one tablespoon of chopped dates left in the bowl. I ate this over chopped romaine with a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette, and my daughter turned hers into a sandwich. I'm just glad I grabbed the camera and got one photo before we dug in!
Chicken Salad By The Ounce1 ounce red onion, chopped
1 ounce carrot, chopped
1 ounce celery, chopped
8 ounces cooked chicken, chopped
1 ounce salted sunflower seeds
1 1/2 ounces mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon chopped dates
salt and pepper to taste
Mix everything together in a medium-sized bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve over a salad, on a sandwich, or just eat it with a spoon. If you like, add more mayo or a tablespoon or two of plain yogurt for a moister salad.
