      Thanks Nami! I wish I had the tearoom now…how things change.

  1. Friends think I’m crazy for loving chicken salad as much as I do…you understand…thanks for sharing this. I think I know what I’m having for lunch =)

      Chicken salad is great! I don’t think you’re crazy at all :)

    It sounds like your parents were very hard workers and they taught you a good work ethic. The chicken salad looks very yummy and this would be so good for you. And this is a perfect recipe for the weather we’re having!

      Thanks Charlie. Yes, my parents did work very hard and gave us everything. I hope I work as hard as they did, I try at least. The salad is great and incredibly refreshing on a hot day. Keep cool!

      Thanks Peachy! Yes, the tearoom was a little too homey for my liking but it was cute. I would do it differently this time around.

    oh how fun! i would love to own a tearoom now though i am sure as a kid, i wouldn’t have cared much for it as i would have been busy with school and hanging out with friends…heheh.

    i can see why this chicken salad was so popular… the ingredients put together must taste great! being an avocado lover, i would like it with a slice to avocado in my sandwich. i want to make this so badly but i am still on a fat free diet. do you think i can use something other than mayonnaise?

      Yes, I wasn’t too into it as a young adult. I wanted to do other things. Maybe you can try a low fat Greek yoghurt? It won’t be totally the same but it would be close.

  5. It is funny how our interests change over the years, isn’t it? I can just picture you in that tearoom working on your scientic equations, but smiling to customers all the while. This avocado looks like it pairs perfectly with this salad. I’ll keep it in mind next time I have some left-over chicken!

    We love chicken salad at our house. Whenever we have to travel some distance whether 30 miles or 1000 miles we always take sandwiches as you did in the car. We just don’t like to have to eat fast food. Homemade sandwiches are the answer for us!
    Your recipe is simple and delicious.
    Hope you’re feeling better.

      Thanks Caterina! Yes, I am doing better, thank you for asking. Hope things are well with you and hopefully there hasn’t been too much snow for you up there.

    Memories and aspirations! I wouldn’t have minded being in your shoes meeting all those astronauts! I know exactly what you mean about the things you could do if you had the tearoom. My husband and I would love to open up a restaurant but with 4 young kids, it’s just not an option at the mo as we are very particular about the time we spend with them (hence the homeschooling!). But that doesn’t mean that I don’t go off having ideas and making plans in my head! Love your fresh and delicious salad!

      Hi Lin! yes, it’s hard to even think about things you want to do when you have little children. I think all the time but even though my children are older, it seems they always need you and you put yourself on hold.

    I remember this creamy, crunchy goodness. Just about the only chicken salad I have ever liked. Do I need to put an icepak if putting in Rehana’s lunch kit?

      I guess it depends when Re eats lunch and when you pack it up. I make Laith’s lunch at 7.45ish and he eats lunch at 11. It’s in a thermo bag so I don’t pack an ice pack, I guess ideally you should!
