This is a cold meal, great for those hot summer nights we are starting to get.

In this case, I had a lot of cooked chicken left from this recipe, so I used it up.

If you do not have left over chicken, just cook some thighs/breasts till they are tender, and shred them. You could also buy a cooked chicken and take off the meat, discarding the skin.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 0 minutes
Makes: 2 - 3 servings

Ingredients
1½ cups cooked chicken
About 60 g walnuts, chopped

50 g grapes
105 g mayo - I used mixture of yogurt and mayo
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp honey
Bit of salt and pepper

Bake the walnuts for about 15 minutes in a medium oven, or until they just start to go brown.
