|Dairy-Free Waldorf Chicken Salad on Endive|
There was to be 25 guests at the shower, so I thought four dishes would be appropriate, as they had some other dishes planned. Already on my menu was the tomato bruschetta. Next I decided to make what I know to be a crowd pleaser, the pear and crisped pancetta with blue cheese. I added a chicken skewer dish, that I glazed with maple and stone ground mustard, and topped with fresh mango and basil. Last I decided on making some gougeres. I had seen this recipe months ago and thought they sounded delicious. And now that I know how to make a pate au choux dough, I felt comfortable making these for the shower. Then they asked for an additional dish, one that has no dairy. So I came up with a dairy-free waldorf chicken salad, served on endive. I hope that everyone at the shower enjoyed the beautiful day, the mom-to-be, the games, and the food!
