This Chicken Salad fits into the category of a “non recipe” for me but Mama swears up and down there is someone out there who would like to see how we make chicken salad. So, I’m gonna mind my Mama and post it. Whenever a Southerner “Swears up and down” about something, its in your best interest to believe them :).
I’m going to keep this post short and sweet because I am getting ready to go see my son in his violin recital! They actually teach violin to third graders in our public schools, how cool is that? Both myself and my Grandaddy played violin “back in the day” and My Grandaddy and I always enjoyed going back and forth over whether it was a violin or a fiddle. Of course, it all depends on the music you play. I was learning to play classical music at the time and Grandaddy was more of a “Lil’ Brown Jug” type guy. I now have my violin and my Grandaddy’s fiddle. I miss seeing him play it. My Grandaddy could pick up any instrument and play a tune after just plucking a few strings to hear how it sounded. He even made instruments in his shop out of jugs, wood planks, and a few guitar strings and played the most lively songs on them! I was very close to my Grandaddy and you’ll end up hearing a lot about him in future posts. But for now, I suppose I should get back to chicken salad.
How many of you have tried the chicken salad sandwich from Arby’s? It is utterly divine in every possible fashion. I know some of you are thinking “A chicken salad sandwich from a fast food place?”. Trust me, its sooooooooo good and this one is right on the money!
