I have never really blogged about chicken salad before, cause it's just sort of something that I do and never really think of it as particularly interesting. I mean, it's just chicken salad after all. It usually changes depending on what is in the cupboard or in the refrigerator. It always contains chicken, of course, but the accouterments change all the time. Isn't that the essence of chicken salad?
THIS time, however, I happened to have all my favorite additions available, so I figured I would go ahead and give the whole thing a whacky whirl and document the deliciousness.
My Favorite Chicken Salad
3 ribs of Celery, diced
1 can of Water Chestnuts, drained and sliced
1 d'Anjou pear, diced
3 Green Onions, sliced thinly
1/2 cup Homemade Mayonnaise
1/2 cup Greek Yogurt
1 TB White Wine
3 TB Fresh Ginger, grated fine (I use a microplane zester)
1/2 tsp Dry Mustard Powder
Place the cubed chicken in the bowl.
