In an effort to both use up food AND be creative and do something a little different, I made chicken salad, topped it with regular cheddar cheese and then put it on top of a waffle. Yes, a waffle. I had my inspiration from a tuna melt on top of an English muffin. This was just canned chicken, s&p, and some yogurt (surprisingly simple, and totally unlike me, to go without any other spices or herbs). I grabbed the wheat waffle out of the freezer and then realized it was a wildberry waffle. I would not be deterred. And you know what? It was really good actually. Chicken salad very often has grapes or other fruit accompanying it, so the tiny bit of sweetness from the berries mixed perfectly with the creamy chicken, and the sharp cheese.
We’ve been on a bit of fish kick lately. I think I’ve decided seafood might be my favorite form of protein. It’s wonderfully versatile with unique flavors. For my cousin I made salmon with a creamy dill marinade and then I coated it with almonds to form a nice little crust and the marinade kept it from drying out.
