Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is not a traditional chicken salad and we loved it. Blending all the ingredients together brings out their flavor. We love the nuttiness of the cashews and the salty green olives. Bell pepper and green onions add a pop of freshness. Mayonnaise is the glue that holds it all together. We served ours with our favorite nutty cracker and it was a delicious light lunch. If you don't have leftover grilled chicken, pre-cooked grilled chicken breasts work too. Going that route makes this simple chicken salad even easier.
