Here’s a new take on a classic pot-luck chicken salad, perfect for picnics, out-door concerts, and tailgates! The dried cherries add a bit of tart sweetness and the pistachios are just the right amount of salty crunchy goodness to round out the dish. This is one of our new favorites!
1 LB chicken breast, roasted, diced
1 cup mayo
2/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup dried cherries
1/3 cup green onion, sliced
1/3 cup celery, diced
1/3 cup shelled pistachios, chopped
1/3 cup mandarin oranges, drained & chopped
1/8 cup brown sugar
1 orange, zested and juiced
In a medium bowl, combine the celery, green onion, dried cherries, mandarin oranges, pistachios and chicken. In a separate bowl, make the dressing by whisking the sour cream, mayo, brown sugar, orange zest and juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
