Yummy Chicken Salad

I don't know about where you live but here in Florida it has been brutally hot this summer. Much hotter than I remember last summer being. When it's this hot, I really hate to cook anything hot. We do lots of "salad" type meals when it's this hot. I recently came up with this chicken salad that turned out really good.

I got some chicken from the deli and had them slice it nice and thick then I cut it up into bite sized pieces DSC00081
Next I chopped up some onion, celery, walnuts and added in some craisins.
Threw it all in together DSC00084 I just love the mix of colors and textures ~ added some mayo, salt & pepper.
DSC00085 Served it on top of some lettuce and a few cool sides. It was very delicious. To make it even better ~ we took a cracker, added a piece of pepper jack cheese and then the chicken salad on top. It was hot, sweet & crunchy all at the same time. Talk about a party in your mouth!!! I even made a nice pitcher of iced tea. I like my iced tea with lime rather than lemon. If you haven't tried it that way ~ it's really good!

This sounds delish, although I don't do iced tea. I like the idea of using deli meat, it makes it nice and easy. Or I guess you could use leftover chicken too. I'll have to try it. You had a pretty presentation on the plate too. Thanks, Barbara!
