Chicken Salad

The  Cast of characters:

2 cans of chicken (we use the ones from Costco)
3 stalks of celery chopped (love the Trader Joe’s celery. It seems to stay the freshest in my fridge the longest.)
1  sliced green onion (optional)
1 chopped granny smith apple (with the skin still on)
1/4 cup of craisins
1/4-1/2 cup of sliced almonds
1 tsp of poppy seeds
a squirt of honey
mayo to taste

First I mix the mayo, poppy seeds and honey. I usually use 1/2-3/4 a cup of mayo, feel free to use more. (We just don’t like our stuff to be overly mayo-ish)

Then mix everything else together in the mayonnaise. It gets really good if you let the flavors “marry” so feel free to make this ahead of time and let it sit. But you can serve it right away too.

You can serve it on a bed of greens and make a nice big salad; alternatively, you could serve it on whole wheat bread and make a fancy sandwich. My favorite way though is to serve it on the Trader Joe’s three cheese sour dough bread with a slice of provolone cheese and grill it for a chicken salad melt. Yummy!
