Here’s an easy way to use leftover chicken from last night’s barbecue. If you can find chives with flowers, use them for added elegance.

Directions
  1. In a medium bowl, gently combine chicken, carrots, avocado, celery, and lemon juice. Toss with mayonnaise to moisten. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in grapes and almonds. (If making ahead, add almonds just before leaving.)
  2. Tear romaine lettuce into a medium bowl with a lid. Mound chicken mixture on top and sprinkle with chives. Keep chilled until ready to pack into a cooler.
