Miss Carroll's Kitchen - August 2023

Miss Carroll’s Chicken Salad

When I want a light lunch, I tend to default to my chicken salad served with fruit and a vegetable salad. My husband and I take this chicken salad with us on fishing trips for an easy lunch while fishing local lakes and rivers.

This southern chicken salad is a quick make-ahead recipe for easy entertaining for a refreshing luncheon or a crowd-pleasing appetizer. Utilizing local farm stands, crisp vegetables enhance the chicken salad with healthy garnishes and side creations.

My Buttermilk Bread recipe is a delicious side with my chicken salad. But, whether you serve the chicken salad with crackers, my buttermilk bread, or let it shine on its own, you’ll be glad you stirred up this recipe. Enjoy!
