This fantastic recipe for Chicken Salad has been living in my archives for more than 12 years now. I brought it to the top of the pile today with new pictures, instructions and a few minimal changes to the ingredient list. It’s got all the elements of a wonderful creamy yet hearty chicken salad, with the addition of crunchy apples and almonds, aromatic rosemary and sweet craisins. You could eat it as a dip for raw veggies or Wheat Thin Crackers, spoon it into a croissant or spread it into some beautiful green lettuce leaves, if you are looking for a gluten free option. As an added bonus…it only takes about 10 minutes to put it together.

Lots of possibilities here, gang. Hope you love it as much as we do. It’s a summer standard at our house.
