Chicken Salad Sandwiches.....summer time is the time of year I can get away with making salads and sandwiches for dinner...and since this menu has both in it's title, what could be better?...my SIL's recipe, that's what!

So I have always struggled with CSS because it tastes too much like tuna fish for my liking. But Randy and Hailey really like them and so I occasionally make them. All that changed last summer....

I was at my brother and SIL's house for my niece's wedding when I tasted the most divine CSS I have ever laid taste buds on. Seriously. When I asked her for the recipe, she was a little vague....you know, like your mom's tried and true favorites? But it turns out great every time...but never quite as good as hers....

So here is her recipe (I hope she doesn't mind...):

Chicken...either canned or cooked, or rotisserie
Mayo, or Miracle Whip
Celery- enough for your liking (I actually used cucumbers because that's what I had)
Craisins (or grapes...but grapes are a great side dish...so, craisins)
Slivered almonds
Grated cheese (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Onion salt
Curry powder

So, I whipped up a batch and packed it in the 'ol cooler with some Costco croissants and we ate it at Hailey's softball game tonight. Delish!!
