Cherry Chicken Salad

Last night I made a cherry chicken salad for dinner.   I came up with this after going to the Cherry Festival in Traverse City, MI.

This salad is very forgiving. You can adjust all of the quantities to your taste

Cherry chicken salad is so good!!!  It is also a fun way to use cherries.  Serve it on bread, on lettuce or with crackers.   You really can’t go wrong.

Cherry Chicken Salad
2 chicken breasts, roasted w/ salt and pepper, cut into chunks
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup celery, sliced thinly
1/2 cup sweet cherries, chopped
1/4 cup dried cherries (I used tart), chopped
1/4 cup nuts, roughly chopped (I used pecans and walnuts)
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
 
Mix all of the ingredients. Chill until ready to serve.
 
I served it in a bowl with romaine lettuce leaves and sprinkled with a few dried cherries and pecan pieces. We used the lettuce like a wrap and also ate the chicken salad plain.
