Good morning! This chicken salad recipe is our favorite. It is very similar to a local coffee shop’s version. I love using left over slow cooker chicken breasts for making cashew chicken salad for lunch. This recipe is also perfect for receptions, parties and showers.
Cashew Chicken Salad Recipe
- 2 cups chopped cooked chicken
- 1/2 cup craisins
- 1 stalk celery, diced
- 1/2 cup cashews
- 1/2 – 3/4 cup mayo
- salt and pepper to taste
Add chicken, craisins, celery and cashews to a bowl and mix. Add mayo, beginning with 1/2 cup. Add more mayonnaise up to 3/4 cup to the consistency you desire. Add salt and pepper and mix well.
This chicken salad gets better as it chills in the refrigerator. Make it ahead and enjoy with crackers, on a sandwich or in a lettuce wrap or cucumber cup!
