Cranberry Nut Chicken Salad

There’s a chicken salad sandwich at Whole Foods on a cranberry bread and it is such a great combo. Mine has dried cranberries and pistachios mixed in it.

We bought the Costco size dried cranberries then everyone decided they didn’t care about them anymore. Of course! The nuts could be any kind you like. We often have pistachios around but walnuts, pecans, almonds, or cashews would all be good too – maybe not peanuts!

Cranberry Nut Chicken Salad
Ingredients: (for 2 servings)

1 cup roasted chicken, shredded
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup nuts, chopped
2-3 tablespoons mayo
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar (or champagne vinegar/cider vinegars)
croissants or bread
salt & pepper

Mix together the chicken, cranberries, nuts, mayo, and vinegar. Stir it together to combine.
Sprinkle with salt & pepper and refrigerate for 30 minutes – overnight.
Assemble onto sandwiches and enjoy!

This felt like such a treat. It is only a few ingredients but has a specialness to it. Celery has no part in my life but add it if you’re into it, or swap the nuts, or add whatever you like!
