Its Too Hot To Cook: No Fuss Chicken Salad

Monday, June 13, 2011

So its actually a nice 70 degrees today but I promised to make these meals for when it does get too hot to cook. So on to it. Its an oldie, but a favorite of mine. Serve in pita or with croissants or just chips& crackers and you're good to go! This recipe yields about 7-8 servings so you can easily have this for lunch the next day and it will even taste better.

Hi from your latest follower. I found you blog hopping. Looks so good. Because we are in Australia it is winter here so it is about 10 degrees. Don't really like winter. Be sure to check out me out at Sarah

Looks really tasty! When you say "green onions", do you mean spring onions (scallions I think you guys call them in America)?

I'm also taking part in the Hearth & Soul hop and that's how I found your blog :)
