Pineapple Chicken Salad


Summer weather is finally here!  It has been hot lately, and I’m just waiting to get a large outdoor umbrella so I can sit outside in our new kiddie pool with my daughter.  Ah, the perks of having a kiddo!

With all this warm weather, it’s nice to have a dinner option that doesn’t require you to fire up the oven.

I’d never tried pineapple in chicken salad before, but I figured it would probably be a winner since I enjoy grapes in my regular chicken salad.  The pineapple doesn’t disappoint and adds a wonderful little pop of flavor.

Make sure you use fresh pineapple in this; it will make a difference in the flavor for sure.  Also, you could grate the carrots if you don’t have anything to help with cutting them matchstick style.  I used my handy dandy mandoline to cut mine and was thrilled with how they turned out!  (This one is mine: Oneida Mandoline Food Slicer) [This is an affiliate link.]

Go and make this pineapple chicken salad tonight, and enjoy it outside if the skeeters haven’t found you yet!

  1. Where is the link for your homemade whole wheat recipe! This sounds delicious! Of course, I would have to get rid of the mayo & salt but the rest sounds wonderful!
