Last week, we had some of that leftover chicken. I was busy moving a dump truck full of mulch that had been delivered to our front yard so asked Matt to make the chicken salad. Matt seems to have an innate sense when it comes to cooking. He almost never uses a recipe & often puts together strange combinations that end up tasting really good together. Take this salad for instance, I would have never thought to put cajun seasoning & kalamata olives together. What we ended up with was a salad that had a nice saltiness from the olives & a zing from the seasoning. It was so good I was sad there was only 4 servings. I'm so lucky to be married to this kind of cook.
Matt's Chicken Salad
2 c cooked chicken, shredded or chopped
1/8 c slivered almonds
1/4 c kalamata olives, chopped
1/4 c scallion, sliced
1/4 c mayo
1 t cajun seasoning
Mix everything together. Serve in a sandwich or on top of a bed of lettuce.
