CHICKEN SALAD RECIPE
We like to make a lot of delicious salad recipes for a lighter dinner option. One of our favorite Main Dishes is this Chicken Salad Recipe. It is so good and a hit with the whole family. I LOVE that this recipe is so versatile and you can switch things out and replace them with your family’s favorites. If you don’t love cashews, throw some almonds or walnuts in the salad. Customize it fit your tastes!
This Salad Recipe is one of our family’s go to recipes in the Spring and Summer!
One of my favorite things about summer is the relaxed schedules. With a relaxed scheduled also comes a change in our meals. I don’t like to do a lot of baking in the summer, heating up the house and the kitchen, so we tend to do a lot of grilling. With the grilling done mostly on weekends, we like to grill up extra meat and save it for the coming weeks meals, thus simplifying dinners all summer long. Sharing the recipe and video tutorial below.
