We have made a variety of cooler friendly foods thus far, but chicken salad is one my favorites.
Wendy's Chicken Salad
This is a concoction based upon some of my favorite chicken salad recipes...
2 cups of cooked and coarsely shredded chicken. Honestly, leftover baked chicken always tastes the best.
2 stalks of celery, finely chopped.
a couple of handfuls of grapes sliced in half
2 tablespoons of mayo, the real stuff
1/4 cup of plain yogurt
dash of kosher salt
fresh ground pepper
And if you are feeling adventurous sometimes I add one of the following... ground cumin, or lemon pepper, or ground ginger, or green onions.
This is some yummy mild tasting chicken salad. I have a small mayo aversion, and the plain yogurt balances this nicely.
Serve on whatever you have, I love croissants, but alas they are expensive. Last night we ate it on whole wheat bread.
In case you are wondering, I also packed watermelon, and water. Not enough to eat. I was under prepared. I need to plan better for next week when I fly solo.
Opinion: Kiddo loves this. Our niece who was also with us did not. We had to buy her a hot dog. Mike and I each ate two sandwiches. I think that explains our feelings.
