Chicken salad is a wonderful, summer sandwich spread to have on hand or make it anytime and it will become a favorite.

Best Chicken Salad

Chicken salad sandwiches are a favorite with my family.  They love them.   I usually have something in the fridge for sandwiches year around. We like sandwiches with soup in winter and with chips in summer for lunch.  Chicken salad is a great way to use up any left over chicken.  I think this recipe will become one of your favorite ways to use chicken.  This recipe could be doubled for a crowd or cut in half.

Chicken salad is easy and delicious.

2 cups chicken, cooked and chopped
3 tablespoons onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup celery, chopped
1 large egg, boiled and chopped
1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish (can use dill pickle relish)
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 cup red seedless grapes, cut in half lengthwise (can use the green grapes, too)
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
1 small apple,  chopped (optional)                   
In a bowl, combine the chicken, onion, celery and egg.  Stir to blend.  Add the relish and remaining ingredients, stir well.  Makes about 5 or 6 sandwiches. Enjoy!
