There's a cafe down the street from where I work that serves the best chicken salad croissant sandwiches. Croissants are my weakness. I can never get enough of that flaky butter deliciousness! Whenever I feel like having something a little different than my usual salad for lunch, I'll head up to the cafe for their amazing chicken salad sandwich. One of my favorite parts of chicken salad is having all the extras in there - the crunch I get from the celery, apples and sliced almonds is the best. This chicken salad is also made with a lightened up dressing, which is so good! It's a mix of mayo and greek yogurt with a splash of lemon juice and some spices.
What does everyone have planned this weekend? Any special recipes you're grilling? I actually surprised Lance with a grill for Christmas. I recommend not buying one off season but that's another story. lol We put it on the deck a few weeks ago and have made some really great recipes so far! It's my first time experimenting with the grill, but so far the recipes have come out great! After being at work all day, it's nice to come home and grill for dinner. It gets me outside a little longer than I normally would be if I was making something in the kitchen. I hope you enjoy the recipes and have a great Memorial Day Weekend!
