Blueberry Almond Chicken Salad Sandwiches

There is something about chicken salad sandwiches that reminds me of childhood lunches after running around on a hot summer afternoon. The sandwich, would usually be accompanied by a side of fresh blueberries, blackberries or raspberries from our local farmers’ market which was the perfect way to soak up the flavors of the season.  Now that I am an adult, my pallet has evolved and I love incorporating fresh fruits wherever I can.  Introducing my grown up version of the chicken salad sandwich! This Greek yogurt based chicken salad has yummy blueberries, almonds, poppy seeds and lots of veggies in it to make it a bit healthier than the traditional chicken salad.  Although I put the salad on a savory croissant this time (it balances out right?) this stuff would be great in a lettuce wrap or traditional whole grain tortilla wrap!

When choosing a drink to go with my chicken salad sandwich I reached for the new raspberry flavored sugar free sweet tea from Southern Breeze Sweet Tea and garnished it with some leftover blueberries and fresh raspberries. 

This recipe is super easy, DELICIOUS and can be done without the use of the stove/oven (it’s way too hot for all of that) by using left over rotisserie chicken. 

Enjoy!
