Chicken Salad

In my last post, I shared a recipe on a DIY mayo. I thought I'd put my mayo to the test with the ultimate chicken salad as I had two grilled chicken breasts left over. This post will be short and {definitely not} sweet. I thought I'd spare you the after shots because with the added turmeric, the chicken salad came out an interesting color which was not pretty in pictures! So you'll have to use your imagination! But I can help a bit with your thoughts - I did make me a nice chicken salad sandwich with sliced tomatoes and spinach. YUM!

1/4 cup lightly browned sweet onion, cooled & diced (you can use raw)
1/4 cup red bell pepper, diced
1/4 cup cucumber, diced
2 leftover cooked chicken breasts, chopped
1 tsp of Mrs. Dash salt-free / MSG-free seasoning of your choice
1/2 tsp turmeric 
1/4 tsp cayenne
3 tbs DIY mayo (recipe here)
S&P to taste 

Mix ingredients together and serve as you wish! I used cucumbers in place of celery. I also wanted added crunch since I didn't use the celery (not a fan) so I added the bell pepper. I chose to lightly brown the onions before adding them in (let them cool slightly if you do cook them). 

Buon Appetito!

Choose, eat, and live well! =)
