Lunch Time: Fruity Chicken Salad Sandwiches


Although we don't eat a ton of sandwiches for lunch here, this is a favorite whenever we do!
I first had this sandwich many years ago out on the lake with a friend's family.
It took me a while to track down a similar recipe, but I'm glad I did!

Feel free to substitute exact kinds of fruit, as those can be a bit tricky on the foreign field!

Fruity Chicken Salad Sandwiches

1/3 c. mayonnaise
salt and pepper to taste
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
2 c. diced cooked chicken
1 lg. Red Delicious apple, cored and diced (use whatever kind you have!)
1 c. red or green grapes, quartered (and seeded, if necessary)
                          OR
1/2 c. raisins, if grapes are unavailable
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
8 slices bread
4 lg. lettuce leaves

In a small bowl, stir together the mayo, salt, pepper, and vinegar.
In a large bowl, combine chicken, apple, and grapes.
Sprinkle with lemon juice.
Add mayo mixture and toss gently.
Toast bread.
Scoop chicken salad onto bread and top with lettuce leaf.

Enjoy!
