Dill Chicken Salad Sandwiches

I saw this sandwich on Cooking Classy that looked so hearty, delicious, and filled with great flavors and textures that I couldn’t wait to try it.  I had leftover roasted chicken so I threw it together with a tangy sauce made of buttermilk, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and dill.  I then added grapes, cashews, celery, green onion,  and parmesan cheese and mixed them until they were evenly coated.  I served this chicken salad on nutty whole grain bread along with crisp romaine lettuce.  It was an awesome sandwich that filled me right up.  I think this chicken salad would be great plain or in lettuce wraps too.  Thanks for the tasty lunch Jaclyn!

Combine the buttermilk, mayonnaise, lemon juice, dill, garlic powder, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, together in a bowl; mix well.

Add the leftover diced roasted chicken, grapes, cashews, celery, green onions, Parmesan cheese, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.  Mix well until everything is evenly coated.  Serve the chicken salad with romaine lettuce on your favorite bread.  Enjoy.

    I love chicken salad sandwiches and this one looks like it came from a gourmet cafe. I also love the looks of that bread. What brand is it?

    The bread alone sold me on that sandwich! And I love the idea of using buttermilk in the sauce. Sounds delicious!

    That is one serious sandwich! Packed with so many different flavors…I wouldn’t have thought to pair dill with grapes, but if it works, it works!

    I normally don’t care for grapes and nuts in my chicken salad but I could handle cashews. Just not walnuts or pecans, ick.
    Glad to have your feed back! (And always appreciate your “feedback”, lol)
