Julia’s Chicken Salad

Chicken salad is probably my all-time favorite cold sandwich recipes.  Every time I make it, the ingredients change based on what I have in the kitchen.  The “bones” of the chicken salad is always the same, but it always has a different flair.  This one has a slight kick to it– but it is basically my base chicken salad recipe with some additions.  Make it yours.
