Presentation is Everything: Chicken Salad Scoops

This presentation of ordinary chicken salad turned what would have been a boring lunch into an exciting one. The idea for this came from Luci's Southern Living For Kids cookbook. 

Chicken Salad

2 cooked boneless skinless chicken breasts, chopped
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup shredded carrot
1 stalk of celery, diced
1/2 cup reduced fat mayonnaise
1/4 cup chopped unsalted roasted peanuts

Place all ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine.

To assemble the Chicken Salad Scoops, put a lettuce leaf in the top of each ice cream cone and then top with a scoop of chicken salad. I used my ice cream scoop to make a nice round scoop. 

I served this with baby carrots and some snack mix I made this weekend.

Luci and Ben were completely smitten with this new take on chicken salad. Gavin appreciates chicken salad on its own merits, but thought the cone was a nice addition anyway.
