Chicken salad is a delicious, refreshing, and filling meal that makes for the perfect snack for afternoons.  It is full of tender juicy chicken, refreshing cucumber, creamy mayonnaise, and fruits such as apples and grapes. Chicken salad tastes heavenly served on a bed of lettuce. The beauty of the chicken salad is that any fruit can be added to it and thus have a different new taste every time.

Trivia

Mayonnaise is one of the essential ingredients in the chicken salad. It was invented by French chef of the Duke of Richelieu, in the year 1756.  While creating a victory feast for the Duke to celebrate his victory over the British, the Chef realized that he had run out of cream to make sauce. He improvised and used olive oil in place of cream in the sauce. The new sauce was named ‘Mahonnaise’ to commemorate the Duke’s successful siege of the capital of Minorca, ‘Mahon’!
