For the Chicken and Green Bean Salad:

  2. Add dressing to salad, tossing to combine.

For the Dressing:

  1. Add mustard, olive oil, lemon juice, thyme and pepper to a small bowl.
  2. Use a fork or whisk to combine.

Cooking Tip: Kids can help crush the almonds! Just put in a sealed plastic bag and let them gently smash with a rolling pin or the back of a small pan.

Keep it Healthy: Seeds like hulled unsalted pumpkin seeds or unsalted sunflower seeds can be used instead of nuts in any recipe. They are just as nutritious!

Tip: Instead of celery, a 12-ounce package of shredded cabbage or shredded carrots can be used. Or, even a chopped cucumber! Just look at what is on sale and what you like to eat.
