Do you love Chicken Salad? Are you picky about what is in it? I made my favorite this morning and can't wait to bite into it. I start with Rotisserie Chicken from the market ( or home roasted chicken, if I have some), always add celery for crunch, some fresh tarragon ( in season), mayonnaise and my favorite addition....dried cranberries. I don't bother to plump them, I like the chewy texture they add. Sometimes I add a very small amount of finely diced red onion and / or sliced almonds. Right now I just have Cocoa Roasted almonds and although they are delicious for a snack I don't think they would too compatible with chicken, lol. Maybe for dessert.
Now for the dilemma...a sandwich on a nice Salaio bread (which is some kind of rustic Italian type bread) or over some mixed greens?
