Classic Chicken Salad

Spring is hopefully around the corner and a perfect time to pack a picnic with chicken salad as the star of the show!  I love chicken salad, so simple, so easy and so good!  I have so many variations that I adore but my go to is Classic Chicken Salad.  How you prefer the ingredients of chicken salad, I find is a bit personal for many as the preferences and ingredients are endless.  Try toasted almonds, sliced grapes, green onion, boiled eggs, pineapple and bell pepper.  Dabble with a variety of seasonings, tarragon, salt and pepper to taste, red pepper flakes for a bit of spice?  Serve solo, in a wrap, lettuce leaf or your favorite bread.  Topped with bacon, sliced tomato, sliced avocado…yum!!  Enjoy!

Tiffy’s Tips 
~ Chicken salad is the perfect recipe for leftover chicken.
