Summer Chicken Salad

It’s rare that we find ourselves in any sort of heat wave here on the glorious west coast. Living near the ocean we have a very high humidity rating year round. So, when the temperatures spiked this past week to 41C (that’s 105.8F!) with a humidity bonus running it up to feeling like 45C (113F) all thoughts turn to how to keep cool and not feel like you are melting.

With the heat and humidity no one in their right mind would want to be stuck in a hot kitchen or even stand over a hot BBQ grill. To beat the heat we’ve prepared for you a cool and tasty Summer Chicken Salad. Relax, stay cool and eat well. Words to live by!
