Chicken Salad is one of those great dishes that becomes a staple for a summer salad or sandwich. There is such a variety of ways you can serve this salad. Serve it over a bed of bib lettuce as a refreshing summer salad, or even a fairly healthy main entree, serve it in some whole grain bread for a sandwich, or serve it on mini croissants for a fancier sandwich and served at a tea party, or open faced on small cocktail bread or toast for a nice appetizer or tapas. No matter how you serve it, they will surely be gobbled up. Enjoy!
