Chicken Salad Spread for Crackers or Sandwiches
Makes about 1-1/2 cups spread
This was my mother's recipe from a long time ago. It is very easy and delicious. Serve the spread with crackers, crostini, pita triangles or vegetable crudites. However, I love it as my mother originally intended it, as a filling for party or tea sandwiches, as in the recipe in the similar and related recipes links.
- 3/4 cup cooked chicken, skin and bones removed
- 1/4 cup celery
- 1/4 cup walnuts
- 1/2 carrot, peeled
- 1/4 large green bell pepper
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- Salt and pepper to taste
Mince the first 5 ingredients in a processor or, as my mother did it, by passing through a meat grinder. Add mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, pepper and blend well. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until needed.
Notes: If using as a sandwich filling, the recipe makes six whole sandwiches before cutting each into four party-sized triangles.
