i have a serious soft spot for sandwiches.
i could eat them everyday. and in fact, i do. 
i'm a staunch sandwich-for-lunch gal. 
but it's not everyday that i make this sandwich.
nope. this one is extra special. 
reserved for dinnertime, even.

when i made this favorite a few nights ago,
i served it with these nifty wedges, mom's baked beans, 
and this salad. it felt just like summertime. 
i was ready to head outside & watch fireworks.

with chicken salad, i like to play around.
mayo or miracle whip. grapes or apples or baby gherkins.
dorothy lynch or vinegar. dill or honey mustard.
here's what i did for this batch..

summer style chicken salad
roughly 2 c. cooked chicken
3 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
1/2 braeburn apple, diced
plenty of coarse salt & pepper
a dollop of mayo
a sprinkle of dill
a dash of cayenne pepper

serve atop toasted wheat bread & fresh spinach.

apples in your chicken salad??? as the over used, cheesy, disney channel original movie-worthy line goes, "who are you, and what have you done with my sister???"
