Pineapple Chicken Salad

The Equal Opportunity Kitchen is hosting the Tried, Tested and True...Take Two foodie event. This is an event with a cause, organ donation awareness. The dish has to be healthy and low calorie, this flavorful summer salad is my entry.

Pineapple Chicken Salad Recipe

2 pounds grilled, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small chunks
1/2 cup toasted walnuts, chopped
2 cups diced fresh pineapple
1/2 cup thinly sliced spring onion tops
1 cup Honey-Lime Dressing

In a large bowl, combine chicken, walnuts, pineapple and onion tops. Set aside.

Honey-Lime Dressing

1/2 cup Brew Master's mustard
1/2 cup Tonn's Wildflower Honey
3 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
3 Tbsp. cider vinegar
1 Tbsp. lime juice

Combine all ingredients, whisk until smooth.

Pour about 1 cup of dressing over chicken mixture, mixing to coat evenly. Cover and refrigerate.

Served over spring mix lettuce.

The Honey Lime dressing is adapted from CD's Kitchen.

Ooh this sounds yummy, and easy! I bet this would be good with some curry seasoning!

The "food critic" doesn't do curry, but he gave this a "10" ... LOL!

Oh yum! YUM! I would love to have a plate of this right now. I made chicken with pineapple not long ago and loved it. The dressing sounds very versatile too. This is a great entry for Tried, Tested and True Two! Thanks for participating!
