chicken salad!

I love going on picnics on sunny days. It’s just so fun to put little snacks into tupperware and pack em all up in a big bag with a quilt and set up shop in a nice plot of grass. Mila, my yorkie, loves to come too. She is so little, we can just shove a stick into the dirt and hook her leash on it and she can’t get away. With all the food we bring, she doesn’t want to go away anyway! Yesterday, was a perfect picnic day. We went around 5, once it had cooled down a little bit and both my husband and I finished up our separate activities for the day. I packed us grapes, raspberries, cheddar cheese, crackers, avocado, chicken salad and perrier. I had only made chicken salad one time before, and I didn’t like what I did the first time. I tried to make it just like tuna salad, but lets face it, chicken salad is different. It turned out bland and boring. This time, it was different. This time, it was amazing!! Rather than using lemon to add a little tang, I used greek yogurt! I also threw in some apples and walnuts to make it more vibrant. It was fantastic – the perfect addition to our picnic basket. I look forward to our next picnic, because I am definitely going to pack this again.
