Best Chicken Salad

IMG_9494Hi friends– Some months our Book Club ends up at a place your grandma would love– “Polly’s” — soup on the back burner and truly good homemade pies.  And I always order the chicken salad sandwich on raisin walnut bread to munch as we talk our way into the varied opinions  of our current book.

So when I came across the chicken salad recipe, I couldn’t resist trying my hand at a little chicken salad of my own.


1/3 cup mayo
1/3 cup unflavored yogurt
1 tsp. dill
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4  cup buttermilk*

3 cups chicken, cut in chunks**
1 small carrot, grated
2 tab. green onion, finely chopped
1/3 cup green bell pepper finely chopped
1/3 cup red bell pepper, finely chopped
1/3 cup red onion, finely chopped
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

1 avocado

Stir together the sauce ingredients in a large bowl.  Stir in the chicken and veggies.  Then taste it and see if you want a little salt & pepper.

Serve it up on bread with sliced avocado–which makes it absolutely the best!
