Steamed Chicken Salad With Herbed Avocado Mayo

by Tenina Holder

I am a little late in delivering this promised recipe…you see I thought I was just a little unwell. Turned out I was extremely unwell and after a quick fix it trip to hospital where they pumped me full of saline, I am practically as good as new…I did say practically…lets not get carried away. I have been laying around for nearly a week now, and it is driving me quietly mad. What did make my day today though, was the fact that in Adelaide at least, For Foods Sake is number 7 on the Dymocks best seller list! YAY...

A word to the wise, if you were hoping to snag a copy or two of this book for Christmas, I would be doing it NOW. Seriously, they are selling like crazy and print shipments are not that reliable in my experience, as limited as it is.

Anyhoo, to the recipe at hand. This goes with the Herbed Avo Mayo of recent times. I started this idea for my Christmas classes, which at this stage, are looking very limited…those too, you will have to buy quickly. I am sooo busy, life is getting the way of my life! (if you know what I mean!)

Hope you enjoy; salad season is almost upon us, though we have rain again in Perth…what is going on?
