This week was very busy catering a wake for a neighbor's mother and a bridal shower two days later....Both were beautiful events and celebrated life's most meaningful moments with friends and family.  Dinner for us was leftover chicken salad.  I get a lot of compliments on my chicken salad because it is so fresh tasting.  A couple of secrets...go easy on the mayo!  Use half mayo and half greek yogurt for a tangy taste.  Secondly, while those in the south may insist that a proper ladies chicken salad is all white meat, a good cook knows the flavor is in the dark meat.  Use a food processor to grind the dark meat up finely and cube your white meat.  The chicken goes further and it's tastier to boot!  Lastly, add chunks of crisp celery, seedless red or black grapes (nice color contrast!) and some pecans for more crunch!  Serve on a toasted croissant roll...mmm!

As the hostess of the bridal shower Lori mentions above I must say that the chicken salad and ALL of the dishes were delicious! I received so many compliments on the shower that I am hooked on Lori to cater any future events at my home! Everything was wonderful and it was stress-free for me. I was able to enjoy and be the hostess.
