Chicken Salad

Posted on

I kind of chuckle to myself every time I make this chicken salad because I remember as a child thinking it seemed really gross every time my mom would make it.  I mean, why would anyone want to eat something with celery & nuts in it?

Well, times {& my taste buds} have changed I guess, because now I consider this one of my favorites.  In the summertime especially, I probably make this once a month, at least.  I remember the first time I made this for Caleb & he had similar sentiments as I did when I was a child. After giving it a try however, he was quickly won over & now has even requested it a few times.  The other day when I was giving him the leftover options, he even chose this over a hamburger, whoa!

Chicken SaladI’ve tried to include approximate measurements in the recipe so you have a rough idea of where to start, but this really isn’t a measure-everything kind of recipe.  I always just toss things in the bowl,  mix it up & give it a taste.  If it seems like it needs more of something, I add it.  Once you make it, you’ll see how easy it is.

We usually dish this up on a thick slice of homemade soaked wheat bread, but it’s tasty enough to be enjoyed all on it’s own too!
