I love chicken salad. There’s just something about chicken coated in mayo and mixed with crunchy vegetables (and sometimes fruit) that makes for a perfect lunch served with a tortilla, chips, crackers, or lettuce. But chicken salad doesn’t have to be the same every time you have it. It’s always good to have a little fun with your food and this chicken salad is exactly that — fun.

I was already getting excited dumping ingredients into the bowl — chicken, Old El Paso Green Chiles, mayo and Greek yogurt, celery, green onion, radish, fresh corn, lime juice and cumin.

Once I mixed it all together, I couldn’t resist diving right into the bowl with a fork to taste test (also the perfect time to season with salt and pepper). Would you be able to resist?
