Picnic Almond Chicken Salad

Summer picnics call for a tasty almond chicken salad that is super simple to put together. For extra ease, buy a rotisserie chicken and all you’ll have to do is shred it. The rest of the ingredients are chopped before being added – onion to give it flavor, celery to add some crunch, and red pepper for a pop of color. If you’re not able to use nuts in your family – or simply don’t care for the taste – the almonds can be easily removed from the recipe.

How kids can help

Kids will likely be more excited to try a new kind of sandwich at the picnic if they’ve had a hand in creating it. Depending on their ages and skill in the kitchen, they could help shred the chicken with a fork or chop vegetables with your trust.
