HOMEMADE CHICKEN SALAD

Ingredients:

2 cups chopped cooked chicken (I use rotisserie chicken)

¼ – ½ cup chopped celery

½ – ¾ cup chopped pecans (optional)

green apple, thinly sliced (optional)

2 hardboiled eggs

½ cup mayonnaise (I use low-fat mayo.)

1-2 teaspoons honey Dijon mustard

¼ teaspoon garlic powder

1/8 – ¼ teaspoon paprika

Dash hot sauce

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Preparation:

In a large bowl, combine chicken, celery, pecans, apple, and eggs.

In a small bowl, combine the mayo, mustard, garlic pepper, paprika, hot sauce, and apple cider vinegar.  Pour over chicken mixture, tossing well.

Refrigerate 2-3 hours. Serve chilled on lettuce leaves or use to make a sandwich.

If you like to eat salads in the summertime like I do, you'll want to try this chicken salad recipe for sure.  Yum!
