Smoked Chicken Salad

Recipe courtesy Chef Melissa Cookston


1 pound pulled smoked chicken

1 cup mayonnaise

1 cup seedless red grapes, halved

1/2 cup sweet gherkin pickles, diced, plus 2 tablespoons pickle juice

1/3 cup celery, finely diced

1/4 cup white onion, finely diced

1/4 cup walnuts, chopped

3/4 teaspoon kosher salt

3/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper


In a large mixing bowl, fold all the ingredients together to incorporate without breaking apart the chicken too much. Serve over butter lettuce with sliced fresh tomatoes and strawberries for a cool salad or on a sliced pumpernickel or wheat bread as a sandwich.
