Ingredients for the Chicken Salad
Another Favorite Chicken Salad Recipe
A Chicken salad recipe with veggies is a general favorite for any season, and easy to make especially when you have left over chicken and veggies in the house. Chicken is similar to turkey in that you want to have an arsenal of different recipes for the leftovers. Most of us get bored using the same old-same old ingredients. Cooking to me is always an adventure in eating, and I am always willing to try new ingredients and spices. I am constantly experimenting--with mostly good results--occasionally not. Here is another chicken salad recipe that I tried recently. Hope you like it.
