Easy Chicken Salad - Sunday's Cool Dinner
This evening I wasn't in the mood to prepare anything that would heat up the kitchen and I didn't want to be out in the heat and humidity standing by a hot grill. I was in the mood for chicken salad so I picked up a rotisserie chicken and cut it up. I diced up 1 large stalk of celery, 1/4 of a large red bell pepper, 2 green spring onions and some pickles, then mixed them in with the chicken and added mayonnaise and a bit of sea salt. You'll notice in the photos below that I don't use a lot of mayonnaise in my chicken salad, so it doesn't stick together as tightly as if there more mayo. I don't like a lot of mayo and I don't use a lot of dressing on my salad and I've never really liked gravy...I'm just weird like that! I topped the chicken salad with chopped roasted almonds and at it "as is" without any additional sides. It was just what I wanted and the best part is that I have enough left to eat for lunch for the next few days, too. Win/win! I snapped a few photos below. Enjoy!
