Chicken Salad

Leftover chicken is great for chicken salad. There are about a billion different ways to make it.

Personally, I like to add something sweet, like apple or grapes, and I always add water chestnuts. They add such a nice, different crunch.

This time I added thyme and sunflower seeds, placed a bunch on a bed of spinach, and topped it with cherry tomatoes. Fantastic lunch.

Is there something unexpected or special that you add to your chicken salad?

Chicken salad is one of our favorites:

-curry, nuts, and fruit like raisins and pears
-fresh tarragon, mayo, & dijon

I usually sneak some low-fat yogurt in to reduce the fat. My husband would die if he knew. He loves it, though. The yogurt gives it a great tang. :)

My fave is Braeburn apples, golden raisins and white pepper.
