Simple Chicken Salad w/ Roasted Hazelnuts
This evening we had a quick and simple dinner. I made chicken salad. I love lots of crunchy things in my chicken salad but hubby isn't wild about crunchy things (well, not in the form of crunchy vegetables like celery and onion). He typically just likes chicken, mayonnaise, salt and pepper. So, tonight we compromised a little. Yesterday I roasted and skinned some hazelnuts...so I decided to make chicken salad with roasted hazelnuts. I love them...they have such a deep and distinct flavor unlike any other nut. They were absolutely delicious added to the chicken salad. It simply consisted of diced chicken breast, mayonnaise, pink Himalayan sea salt, freshly ground black pepper and chopped roasted hazelnuts. I piled it into little artisan romaine lettuce leaves. It was simple and different because of the hazelnuts. I snapped a couple photos below. Enjoy!
