I’m about to admit a HUGE weakness of mine and its the Chicken Salad Sandwich. I can’t get enough of this stuff. I’m picky about it too like I am my tortillas. I prefer not to have nuts or fruits in at as well. Just a good ole’ plain chicken salad sandwich without the extra fluff.
This recipe is a old one that I am bringing back because I can’t get enough of it. Also, it was time to redo the photo because you couldn’t really tell what type of sandwich it was. (Oops) My mom used to make large batches of this chicken salad and we or I should say “I” would eat it all up. I remember asking her about the crunch and she told me it was water chestnuts. Now the only other time I eat these chestnuts is when I’m consuming Chinese food. I love the crunch that they add and who would have thought to add them to this classic dish.
Now I’m not afraid to admit that I really DISLIKE mayonnaise.
I don’t like to touch it, I don’t like to smell it and I don’t like it in my food. However I only make the exception for it in my chicken salad. I “pretend” that its not really in the dish.
What is your one type of food that you can’t stand?
