Red White and Blue Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Red, White, and Blue Chicken Salad for #SundaySupper

123 Flares 123 Flares ×

Chicken salad is one of my favorite sandwich fillings. But, the only time I make it is when I have leftover chicken! So early last week, when believe it or not, I had some Moroccan fried chicken in the leftover rotation, I jumped at the chance to make chicken salad. But not just any chicken salad. Red, white, and blue chicken salad.  Call me patriotic.

Red White and Blue Chicken Salad Sandwiches

The sun is finally shining consistently and slowly seasonal produce like cherries, blueberries, and strawberries are making their delicious way to the market, and my belly.  I happened to have a few left in my fridge and decided they would make the perfect pair to my chicken. This is an easy recipe you can toss together with any fruit you have on hand.  I’m sure you’ve seen chicken salad with grapes and pecans, well if you like that, you’ll love this!  Trust me.

Red, White, and Blue Chicken Salad for #SundaySupper

10 minutes

10 minutes

Mix seasonal fruit into your next chicken salad for a unique and patriotic twist on this classic sandwich.

Ingredients

  • 1-2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1 handful of blueberries
  • 1 handful of cherries, pitted and halved
  • crumbled queso fresco, or feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/8 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/8 cup Greek yogurt
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Bread or Buns to serve with chicken salad

Instructions

  • Wash and dry blueberries; wash, pit, and halve cherries.
  • In a large bowl, toss together almonds, blueberries, cherries, cheese and shredded chicken. Adjust quantities of each for your tastes.
  • In a separate bowl mix together mayonnaise, yogurt, salt and pepper. You could also add other seasonings such as cayenne pepper for a little extra heat, but season lightly so as not to overpower the fruit.
  • Slowly add the mayonnaise mixture to the chicken mixture. You will want to coat everything but not to leave it swimming in liquid. Continue adding until the chicken and fruit mixture is moist.
  • Place a dallop of chicken salad onto bread or buns (make it even better by toasting them!)

    This weekend is considered the start of summer in the United States.  So, it makes sense that the theme for this weeks' Sunday Supper is Picnics. It seems like we missed spring and are jumping right into summer considering we've only been without snow on the ground the last three weeks. I however, am not…

    Roast chicken seems to me to be an often overlooked meal.  There are few times when I buy a whole chicken but whenever I do the meal is always warmly received.  This recipe is no different.  At my engagement party in Morocco my sister in law cooked the most amazing chicken dish.  To this day…

    That’s the prettiest chicken salad I’ve ever seen. What a great combination of flavors!

    Mmm. Your chicken salad might be better than grapes and pecan garnishes, Amanda. I hadn’t thought of feta cheese and Greek yogurt in chicken salad but it makes perfect sense. Perfect tasty sense! And the addition of the almonds, blueberries and cherries can only make it better!

    The hubby would be satisfied with a chicken salad sandwich with just chicken and mayo. Now, your version is more my style…love the addition of berries and nuts. It must taste amazing!
