Chicken Salad Recipe

Chicken Salad Recipe

R-E-F-R-E-S-H-I-N-G is the best way to describe this Chicken Salad Recipe, made with chicken breast, fresh cilantro, lime juice, tomato, onion, and chunky salsa.

It is still Summer, I repeat: IT IS STILL SUMMER!!!!

We still have a few more days of summer left, and to be honest I am not ready for The Fall.

In my humble opinion, vacations are always too short. I went to DR for 4 weeks (it is never enough). 

I made some awesome recipes over there and this is one of them. 

And since I am not ready for Fall I’ll just make myself believe I am back in the Dominican Republic drinking some fresh coconut water. 

Ok! Let me stop. I won’t torture myself anymore. You are here because you want to know about this full-flavored Chicken Salad Recipe right? Keep reading my friend.

So, I recommend you serve this salad with some delicious brown or white rice (I know… carbs!!!!) But a bit of carbs never hurt anybody. You can also enjoy this Chicken Salad with some crispy and scrumptious tostones (fried plantain) the Dominican in me is screaming!!!!  

 I have another salad recipe that you are going to love as much as this Chicken Salad Recipe. If you are a tuna fan this Pasta and Tuna Salad is going to steal your heart. 

Finally, as much as I am enjoying the last few days of summer and although I am not ready for the fall I cannot wait to try some pumpkin spice latte. What is your favorite fall drink?

God Bless You!
