Zesty Lime Chicken Salad Recipe

Zesty Lime Chicken Salad Recipe

I was anxious to experiment and try a new recipe last night, so I switched things around on the menu with this zesty lime chicken salad! Typically, when I make a chicken salad, it’s your typical recipe, including chopped chicken, mayo, grapes(halved), chopped celery, and a dash of sugar, salt, and pepper. This time I wanted to try something a little different.

I had some English bread on hand, so I buttered one side and threw it on the skillet for a few minutes until golden brown. Finally, the bread was warm, the zesty lime chicken salad was cold, and the sandwich was delicious!

I plan to have this for dinner tonight as a lettuce wrap. My brother stopped by on his way for errands, so I made him try a bite. He liked the taste of it; he just wasn’t sure of the texture(but he always gives me a hard time adding fruit to my lettuce salads, so I expected that-plus I knew he had never tried a red or yellow bell pepper).
