Instructions:


For the Harvest Chicken Salad:

  1. To a large bowl, add all the chicken salad ingredients besides the bread and butter. Mix well, cover with plastic wrap, and chill in the fridge for one hour.

  2. Place a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Butter two slices of bread (only on one side). Scoop chicken salad onto one slice of bread on the non-buttered side. Top with the other slice, buttered side facing up. Place in a skillet and cook for 2 minutes, flip, cook for another two minutes. Remove the sandwich from the skillet, slice, and plate.

For the Charred Kale:

  1. Place a skillet over medium high heat. Once hot add 1 tbsp of olive oil to the skillet and lay half the kale down in an even layer. Leave the kale undisturbed for 2 minutes. Give the kale a toss, arrange the kale in an even layer once again, and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Add 1/2 tsp salt, give the kale one more toss and plate the kale with the sandwich. Repeat with the remaining kale.


For the Fall Fruit Salad:

  1. To a medium sized bowl, add all fruit salad ingredients. Mix well and chill until ready to serve with the sandwich. Bottoms up!
