[recipe] Chicken and Broccoli Salad

(note: while i enjoy cooking, i'm not so good at the whole "measure stuff" and "follow the recipe" aspects of it.  you've been warned.)

Chicken and Broccoli Salad
serves:  meh...2-4.  depends on who you're serving.

1 chicken breast, poached                                                              
1 small head of broccoli, florets only                                                            
2ish TBS mayonnaise (the real stuff.  with all the fat.)                  
a couple hearty squirts of dijon mustard
pinch of salt
dried cranberries

Shred chicken breast into small bowl.

In a food processor, chop broccoli finely.  Add to shredded chicken.  Mix in mayonnaise, mustard, and a bit of salt.  Top with dried cranberries and serve as a sandwich, wrap, or on top of spinach or greens.

optional additions: walnuts, almonds, celery, grapes, apples...whatever you want.

I had this for lunch today.  Sometimes simple is good.  REALLY good.

hugs, friends.  may this week be better than the last.
