Cashew Chicken Salad

We have a big gathering planned with friends and family for our little girl’s blessing.  It is always busy getting ready to have family over and a big luncheon afterwards.  Chicken salad sandwiches are always a great thing to make for those kind of events.  But I wanted to make mine super yummy with some added ingredients.  And let me tell you…  cashews made it AWESOME!

This may have just become my favorite variation of chicken salad.  I am obsessed with cashews.  They gave this such a yummy crunch and texture with each bite.  There were so many flavors that combined to make this chicken salad so delicious.  Grapes, apples, cashews….  the sweet and salty together was fabulous.  I can’t wait to make this for everyone on Sunday!  It comes together so quickly.   I know you are going to love it too!
