I love a good healthy chicken salad recipe with no mayonnaise! It’s the perfect thing to make in advance and serve to guests for lunch. It also make a good sized batch to last throughout the week to take to school or work as well. It’s also one of those “hot weather” dinners when it’s just too hot in the kitchen to cook. Make this in the morning and come home to a deliciously chilled dinner 🙂 Enjoy!
