Crunchy Chicken Salad

Chicken salad sandwich.
A nice simple sandwich. 
But there are many, many....
many different versions of this tasty salad.
We have tried quite a few ourselves.
Sweet ones,
tangy ones,
ones with almonds, with apples,
with olives (pretty good),
with veggies, without veggies, 
with eggs, 
shredded chicken or chunky chicken.
But this is our favorite.

Chicken salad is very versatile.
It can be served on a croissant, on a bed of lettuce,
rolled up in a wrap, or with your favorite sandwich bread.

It is super simple to make.
 Start with cooked chicken.
You can cook your chicken breast 
 in the microwave or in a skillet
 with a little oil.
We have used grilled chicken 
leftover from a cookout.
Cut your chicken how you prefer. 
Chunks, shredded, or chopped.
 Now what makes this salad crunchy is the veggies!
We like celery, cucumbers, and radishes.
 Add the mayonnaise, salt, pepper, and dill.
 Stir until well mixed.
Refrigerate to let all of the flavors mix together.
Not sure if that is a real word but that is what our little guy says when he eats something he likes.

Crunchy Chicken Salad
2 1/2 cups cooked chicken
 1/2 cup cucumber, diced
1/2 cup radishes, sliced then cut in half
1/2 cup celery, sliced
1 cup mayonnaise
 1 1/2 tsp dill
dash of salt and pepper

Mix all of ingredients together.
Chill for 1 - 2 hours.
Serve on croissants, 
in wraps, or with your favorite bread.

For extra flavor dress it up with 
a few dried cranberries and pecans. 
Debbie loves it this way...Dakota doesn't.
To each their own...chicken salad, that is.
