Greek Chicken Salad
I have been so busy over summer that I have not had time to keep up with posts, hopefully I will have some more time to post more regularly over August. I tagged this recipe to make for a swap I am involved in, as I had some leftover roast chicken to use up. It was a quick, easy and very tasty recipe and I loved the combination of ingredients used. I made mine with regular mayonnaise instead of miracle whip as I prefer this. I served ours over salad greens with some crusty bread for a great summer time meal.

3 Cups cubed cooked chicken breasts (About 3- 4 breasts)(leftover roast chicken also works well)
2 Medium cucumbers, peeled, seeded, chopped
1 1/4 Cups crumbled feta cheese
2/3 Cup sliced pitted ripe olives (I used pimento stuffed olives.)
1/4 Cup snipped parsley
3/4 Cup Miracle Whip (I used mayonnaise)
3/4 Cup plain yogurt
1 Tablespoon dried oregano
3 Minced garlic cloves
Lettuce leaf


1. In a large bowl, combine chicken, cucumber, cheese, and olives.

2. In a smaller bowl, stir together parsley, Miracle Whip, yogurt, oregano, and garlic.

3. Add to chicken mixture, toss to coat, Ccver and chill.

Serve on lettuce or mixed green leaves.

Chinese Tuna With Curry Chive Mayonnaise
This is one of the nicest ways I have prepared tuna in a while, I think it is because it is a little different. I love tuna and this recipe was no exception the curry mayonnaise goes so well with it and the marinade is wonderful. It is a quick and easy meal to throw together with a wonderful end result. I served ours over salad greens with avocado and mango some chopped up egg and alfalfa sprouts. It made for a very healthy delicious meal.

6 Tuna steaks


1/4 Cup sherry wine
1/4 Cup light soy sauce
2 Tablespoons oyster sauce
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 Tablespoons sesame oil
1/2 Teaspoon ground pepper
2 Tablespoons minced green onions
1/4 Cup minced ginger
1/4 Cup water
1/4 Cup vegetable oil

Curry Mayonnaise

1 1/2 Cups mayonnaise
1/4 Cup honey
1/4 Cup finely chopped chives
2 1/2 Tablespoons curry powder
1/2 Tablespoon turmeric


1. For mayo, combine all ingredients in a steel bowl and stir until completely incorporated. Refrigerate for later use.

2. For marinade, add all ingredients in a steel bowl and stir until well combined; let sit for 2 hours for flavors to blend.

3. Marinate tuna steaks in marinade for 2 hours. Grill tuna on high heat for 2 minutes on each side (do not overcook, or tuna will become dry).

4. Place mayo in a plastic bag, cut off the bottom corner of bag and squeeze sauce across grilled tuna in a “zig zag” pattern.
