Instead of the usual grapes and celery, try some fresh peaches and cucumber in chicken salad.

What a unique and fresh twist on chicken salad. Mixing mayo and sour cream create a yummy dressing. We never thought to add fresh peaches to chicken salad and we were in for a wonderful surprise. The peaches are sweet and mixed with the cucumbers give this salad a fresh feel. There are just enough red onions to add a bite but not be overpowering. Sprinkling the chicken salad with toasted almonds adds a fantastic nutty flavor. A refreshing summer salad to have a hot day. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Chicken Salad With Fresh Peaches

Step-by-Step

  1. Toast the almonds: Place a single layer of nuts in a skillet. Over medium-low to medium heat, stirring constantly, toast until golden and fragrant. (Be careful not to burn them.) When cool store in an airtight container.
  2. Poach the chicken breasts: Add chicken to a large pot of water, bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, covered, for about 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. I like to add a chicken bouillon cube and seasoned salt to my water for extra flavor, but it's not necessary.
  3. Drain chicken breasts. When cool, shred (or dice if you prefer).
  4. In a bowl, combine mayo, sour cream, and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Add chicken, cucumber, peaches, and onion to the bowl. Mix gently.
  6. Chill. When ready to serve, sprinkle toasted almonds on top.
  7. * If you don't like the strong flavor of onions in your chicken salad, soak them in cold water for about 10 minutes and drain. This makes the flavor mild.
