Blueberries make a lovely addition to summer salads and work particularly well with chicken, adding a hint of sweetness and texture.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2 cups cubed or shredded cooked chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced & chopped fennel bulb
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1/4 cup toasted, chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • salt & pepper to taste

METHOD

Set aside a handful of blueberries along with toasted walnuts (if using) for topping.

In a bowl, gently toss chicken, celery, fennel, green onions and blueberries. In a small bowl, mix yogurt, mayonnaise, lemon juice,  and seasoning. Pour over the chicken mixture and gently toss again until the everything’s coated. If the salad seems dry, add a little more mayo or yogurt.

Keep in the fridge until serving. Top with blueberries and toasted walnuts.
