So, it’s summertime (even though it definitely doesn’t quite feel like it here in England). It’s crazy trying to imagine the heat wave in the US right now when we are wearing jackets and rain gear almost everyday in jolly ole’ Oxford. To brighten my spirits and get on with summer, weather permitting or not, I decided to share my mom’s prized chicken salad recipe. She sells this stuff by the gallon (or close to it) and it is probably one of my all time most favorite summer treats. Serve it up on croissants, pitas, a bed of lettuce, or use a baguette and serve a dollop on top for an open faced sandwich. Trust me…this is good stuff. Like so good you have to restrain yourself from eating the whole batch at once.
The rain and cold can’t keep us from having a summer picnic inside today! :)
4 c. shredded cooked chicken (3 large breasts)
5-6 large stalks of diced celery
2 tbsp apple cidar vinegar (an addition from my brother bubba-yep, that’s his nickname) :)
1 c. mayo
1/3 c. half/half or cream or whole milk
1/4 c. honey
1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp coarse ground black pepper
Mix well together! Chill and enjoy!
