The Eat Food NOT Money Cookbook

Homey Click Salad

I promised you one of my “notebook recipes” today and this is the one I picked. This is great as a brunch.

What you’ll need:

  • Cooked meat from a 4 lb chicken (about 2 cups) or 2 cans chunk chicken*
  • 1 c celery, cut on an angle
  • 1 c green bell pepper, minced
  • 2 tsp grated onion
  • 2/3 c mayonnaise
  • 1/4 c light cream
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 2 Tbl vinegar

In a large bowl, mix together meat, celery, bell pepper and onion. Set aside. In another bowl, mix together mayonnaise, cream, vinegar and salt and pepper. Mix into meat mixture well. Chill for at least one hour or overnight covered with plastic wrap. Stir once before serving. Tastes great served with cranberry sauce or a tart jelly. Feeds 4 – 6.

*If using canned chicken, break up the chicken chunks with a fork before mixing with other ingredients.

Cost:
canned chicken chunks – $2.50
bell pepper – $0.90
yellow onions (3 lbs) – $0.99
mayonnaise – $3.12
cream – $1.12
vinegar (small) – $0.92
Total – $6.50
