Ballad of the Chicken Salad

20140507-194320.jpg

Summer is here! Okay, maybe it’s still considered Spring, but to me it already feels like the best part of Summer. Sunny days & warm nights are perfect for grilling (even indoors!) but if you don’t want to break out the grill every night, it’s nice to enjoy something that doesn’t require cooking. Enter, the best chicken salad you have ever tasted! Eat it in a pita, eat it on a croissant, scarf down the leftovers straight out of the bowl–however you have it, you will love it. 😀

Super Awesome Chicken Salad

1/2 c. mayonnaise
1/2 c. sour cream
1 T. lemon juice (half a lemon squeeze)
2-3 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
3 c. cooked cubed chicken
3/4 c. quartered grapes
1/2 c. chopped, roasted walnuts

In a small bowl, blend the first 5 ingredients and set aside. You can use a whisk, I used a fork.

A. It was less expensive than buying two chicken breasts and
B. It’s already cooked! And seasoned! So much easier.
I didn’t measure out the 3 cups of cubed chicken, but a whole rotisserie chicken gives you a lot. It was enough for 4 servings, which is more than enough for me & my babe.

I served it with some juicy tomatoes, and I’m sure some lettuce would’ve topped it off as well. So so good!

Love,
Feisty
