I’m a big fan of sweet fruit paired with poultry, and love a good salad sandwich. Bringing cherries and chicken together for a yummy sammie is the best thing you can do in these hot summer months when the kitchen is the last place you want to be. I used some left over chicken, fresh cherries, red onion and nuts. Pair this little number with a rindless parrano cheese or cheddar cheese and serve on a multi grain bread.
Ingredients for Chicken Cherry Salad:
2 – cups chicken pieces

2 – tablespoons dijon mustard
1/3 – cup mayo
salt and pepper to taste
2 – tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
choice of bread and cheese
Mix chicken, cherries, red onion, and pecans in a bowl until combined.
Then add mustard, mayo, salt and pepper. Mix well. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and mix again.
Then spread it on bread and add cheese and or avocado…. whatever you like. Even enjoy it on crackers or chips.
