Lunch of the week: herbed chicken salad

I would show you pictures tonight of the beautiful glazed cabinets I'm creating for a client, but they aren't done yet, so not very photogenic.  The only creative thing I've done here at home this week is fix lunches to take to work, so here's the recipe for my newest version of chicken salad.

Everything is approximate-it's sandwich filling, just wing it.

Per serving you need:
  • 1/3-1/2 cup diced, cooked chicken
  • 1/4 of a tomato, diced
  • 4-5 chives, chopped
  • 6-8 shredded fresh mint leaves, yup, mint leaves, trust me
  • a couple drops of mustard
  • a little mayonnaise
  • 1 10 inch tortilla
  • 1 large lettuce leaf
Mix the first six ingredients.  Lay lettuce on top of tortilla, pile filling on lettuce leaf, roll up.  Eat quickly before all the juicy filling finds it's way past the lettuce leaf and soaks the tortilla.  This sandwich travels pretty well wrapped in plastic wrap, if you go really light on the mayo.  You won't miss the moisture, as the tomato does the trick.

I hope you have a great weekend.  If you are in Belle Plaine late morning through midday on Saturday, you can stop in at Mystic Journey to meet Jordan author Cat Isles, who will be there signing her new children's book, Faces, Who Are We?

Speaking of Cat, Mark your calendar for June 25 and 26, which is the Jordan Art Festival.  Cat and her husband Steve were headed out to put the signs up around Jordan today.  At least that was the plan. They said the rain wouldn't deter them and in fact, it would make the ground softer for digging post holes.  Sure.  I'm thinkin' that painting about a million cabinet doors might have been a boring way to spend my day, but at least it was dry!  Check back Monday night for photos of that project.
