One of my favorite sandwiches is chicken salad. Every time I go to a sandwich shop, that is what I order. Ask me if I ever make it at home? Not so much. I think it's because when I make it myself it never tastes as good as when someone else does; probably because I just grab a few chunks of chicken and slather some mayonnaise on a piece of bread and that's it. Today I decided to use the same ingredients that the sandwich shops use and lo and behold, I finally made the kind of sandwich that even I can love.
I know this recipe is no big deal but sometimes the simple things in life are the most pleasurable!
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped dried cranberries
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
2 cups diced chicken (cooked)
5 tablespoons mayonnaise
I love raw celery, especially with a little peanut butter smeared on it. This time though, I'm going to chop some up; 1/2 cup's worth.
Finally, in a small bowl; add the cranberries, walnuts, celery, and chicken. Stir in the mayonnaise until the mixture is thoroughly combined. Spread the chicken salad on a couple of slices multi-grain bread and add a few leaves of raw spinach to finish the sandwich. Yum...enjoy!
