Cucumber Dill Chicken Salad

You would be lying if you said that chicken salad wasn’t one of the most perfect picnic foods. You can eat it on a croissant, but my favorite is with kettle-cooked potato chips, ugh it’s the perfect crunch. This recipe from PBFingers gives chicken salad the perfect twist, adding in the yogurt and cucumber. It’s incredibly refreshing and great in lettuce wraps for lunch!

Ingredients

  • 3 Cups Rotisserie Chicken, chopped and chilled
  • 2/3 Cup Greek Yogurt, I used low-fat, she recommends full-fat, do what you like
  • 1 TBSP Dijon Mustard
  • 1/2 Lemon, Juiced
  • 1/3 Cup Green Onion, chopped
  • 3/4 Cup Seedless Cucumber, finely chopped
  • 1/2 Cup Celery, chopped
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Dill, chopped, she used dried dill but I think fresh provides a better flavor
  • 1 TSP Sea Salt
  • LOTS OF GROUND PEPPER

Let’s Get Cooking

Remove the chicken from the bones and finely chop, place into a large bowl.

Mix all of the ingredients together well.

Easy, peasy, that’s it. Serve on bread, lettuce, or with your favorite potato chip.

Hannah’s Chicken Salad

A picnic classic that just about everyone has their own version of. It’s the perfect meal to pair with warm weather and a crisp white wine. Make this as a bunch, or single serving, and serve on your choice of bread. I like croissants, but that’s just me.

Ingredients

  • 1 Granny Smith Apple, diced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 Rotisserie Chicken, both white and dark meat shredded [save bones to make broth]
  • 1/4 Cup Craisins, finely diced
  • 1/4 Cup Celery, finely diced
  • 3 TBSP Olive Oil Mayo [to start, add more if needed]
  • 1 TBSP Dill
  • Salt + Pepper

Let’s Get Cooking

Start off by taking all the meat off the chicken, shredding it along the way. If you’d like save the bones to make stock.

Dice the apple + celery + craisins and add in with the chicken.

Add in the mayo, stirring to make sure it is well incorporated.

Add in the dill + salt + pepper and mix. If needed add extra mayo now.

Now you have chicken salad!

Serve on a croissant, with crackers, I love it with potato chips as well.
