This chicken salad is ultra creamy, and the sauce has real pickle juice stirred right on in. Chunks of rotisserie chicken, diced crisp dill pickle pieces, and a mild garlicky tang from freshly sliced green onions, this is Dill Pickle Chicken Salad makes the definition of a hearty Summer sandwich supper.
Sandwiches seem to reign supreme in the warm weather months. Not that I’m complaining. I totally get it too.
Sandwiches for lunch, sandwiches for dinner y’all. It happens around here guys, and not one bit of me is ashamed to admit it.
I mean as long as I don’t slap a PB & J or a grilled cheese with only a single slice in the middle on a plate and call it dinner, my guys are happy to have a sandwich as the main part of their evening meal.
