Confetti Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Sandwich, Recipes

Josh Thurston says this summer season staple brings cause for celebration with its “confetti,” pops of color than brighten the chicken salad recipe. If you’re interested in something a little more adventurous than the classic chicken/mayo/celery mix, this one is for you. “All the extras, like the green onion and red pepper, add eye appeal as well as extra nutrients and crunch,” explains Thurston.
