Feed Me: Melissa’s Chicken Salad

The last two weeks have been 3 day work weeks for me which has been lovely! I spent a lot of time cooking, cleaning, and catching up on everything.  I really enjoy cooking a few meals during the day that way during the week I don’t feel as crazy.  I had been really craving some chicken salad and we had all these fun mix-ins. I looked at a few recipes for some inspiration, but in the end I did my own thin.  So here it is an original recipe, Melissa’s Chicken Salad.

Chicken Salad


Celery, cucumber, radishes, craisins, and walnuts.  I love the CRUNCH!
