I have a few go-to chicken salad recipes (especially this Turkish version!), but am always on the lookout for new ones. When I saw this over at A Zesty Bite’s Top 10 Recipes of 2014, I knew I had to make it!
Chopped water chestnuts, celery and onions add a nice bit of crunch to this tasty chicken salad recipe. It’s simple to put together, and holds up well for several days in the refrigerator.
I served these on potato rolls with lettuce and tomato, and some new pickles from the Farmers Market on the side. It made for a delicious lunch!
