Pablo Casals, the famous cellist, composer, conductor, once said (modified a bit):
“Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all of the world there is no other person exactly like you. In the millions of years that have passed there has never been another person like you… You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. You must cherish one another. You must work—we must all work—to make this world worthy of each of us.”
Do you approach your day with this mindset? What would change if you did?
I’m inspired. Oh, how our world would change for the better if we all worked “to make the world worthy of each of us.”
I love to cook, and I love to create. I also love my wife very much! So I make her lunch on the days she goes into the office.
So today, I’m sharing a simple lunch salad recipe my wife loves. Why? We are called to serve others – for me, this starts at home.
Gourmet Chicken Salad by Jim Johnson
* 2 boneless, skinless grilled chicken thighs (or half of a chicken breast) – note: this is a great way to use leftover grilled chicken from the night before. I marinate mine in a sesame ginger marinade. I find this makes the best tasting chicken for the salad.)
* 5-7 green seedless grapes cut in half
* 1 Tbsp of a great relish – I use Sechler’s Hungarian sweet relish. It’s made about 40 minutes north of my city. Simply the best relish!
* 1 overflowing Tbsp of mayonnaise (use your favorite)
* iceberg lettuce chopped
* fresh spinach chopped
Putting it together: Simply mix the grapes, relish, mayo, and chopped chicken together. Place on the lettuce/spinach.
