Recipe of the.....ummmmm.....Week???

It's been a while since I've added a recipe.....sorry, but life seems to get in the way of my best intentions sometimes. This time I raided my Mom's recipe box....she clips lots of recipes and is much better about trying new recipes than I am, probably because she is very social and is always taking food somewhere! Today's recipe is one she printed from the Cooking Light website and sounds really good although I haven't tried it yet.

CASHEW CHICKEN SALAD SANDWICHES

1/4 c. fat-free sour cream
1 T. light mayonnaise
1/4 tsp. curry powder
2 c. chopped roasted skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 2 breasts)
1/3 c. chopped celery
2 T. chopped dry-roasted cashews
1 T. finely chopped green onions

Combine first three ingredients in a large bowl, stirring until well blended. Add chicken, celery, cashews, and green onions; stir well. Serve on your favorite bread.

Note: When I make this I will leave out the curry powder and maybe substitute ground rosemary, and also leave out the celery. Chopped apple might be a good replacement. I would serve this on croissants with a tossed salad on the side.

Happy eating!
