April’s Chicken SaladPosted: April 4, 2011
I don’t usually like chicken salad. I don’t like onions, and generally, I don’t like mayonnaise. Something about my friend April’s chicken salad made me change my mind though… It could be the cucumber…lack of onion… or the apples…
This chicken salad can be made in roughly 15 minutes (plus time to chill). Its a simple and quick spring time lunch. And since its April now, and I got the recipe from my friend April, it seems like a fitting way to start off the month. I’m pretty sure April didn’t write the recipe, but I don’t know where she got it, so for now, April can claim the chicken salad.
Ta-da! And because I wasn’t patient enough by the time supper rolled around to fish out my camera before I rapidly shoveled it into my mouth… I have no picture of it on a pretty kaiser roll. So sorry.
