I first saw this Chicken Salad on a cooking blog that I read called “The Sparkled Sidewalk” and I thought it was so interesting because she took the recipe from a Whole Foods chicken salad that she had gotten from Whole Foods prepared foods. I pretty much followed her recipe except that I omitted the salt because I used a Rotisserie Chicken which was already prepared and plenty salty enough. I also omitted the black olives because my family prefers green ones. Original recipe calls for both types of olives and it would be good with both . It tasted delicious and I want to thank The Sparkled Sidewalk for her inspiration . This is what I did for Mother’s Day Brunch ’14 at my house. Delicious on toasted bagels or just on a bed of greens.
