On its own, chicken salad can be a tad bit blasé. This sunflower chicken salad recipe knocks it up a notch and makes chicken salad completely worthwhile. This recipe calls for sunflower seeds which gives a crunch factor to the chicken salad. The grapes inside the recipe also makes the dish slightly sweet which is a welcome reprieve from the often all too creamy chicken salad that is typically found at summer picnics and spring outings.

Health Benefits

One of the more interesting ingredients in this dish are the sunflower seeds. It’s hard to think of a simple seed as having a lot of health benefits, but that is the case in fact. Sunflower seeds can promote hair growth, aid in weight loss, prevent certain cancers, and lower cholesterol levels. They have a high vitamin E content which can act as an antioxidant and help rejuvenate the skin by increasing blood circulation. This also has the benefit of reducing wrinkles.
