Chicken Salad

Chicken Salad is so easy to make and so delicious!  I came up with my own recipe a few summers ago when my husband and I went camping with friends and needed a quick and easy (yet tasty) meal for when we arrived at the campsite.  My friend’s husband was very skeptical because he usually doesn’t care too much for food made with dressings (like mayo).  He tried it and loved it!  Every time they came to visit I made this every time because we all enjoyed it so much!  I even got my family to love it…which can be a hard task at times.  So, here it is.  Very general but great for tweaking to make it your own!

Mix everything together in a large bowl and refrigerate until chilled.  Serve on bread or crackers.  Enjoy!
