Bright and Cheery Chicken Salad Sammies

We had these for lunch a few days back. I put the salad through my mini food chopper for a smooth-ish spread but it can be left chunky as desired.

Bright and Cheery Chicken Salad Sammies


  • 12.5 ounce can chicken breast, drained
  • 8 ounce can pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 8 ounce water chestnuts, drained and chopped roughly
  • 1-3 tsp mild curry powder (to taste)
  • ¼ cup light mayo (used an olive oil based one)
  • ¼ cup dried cherries
  • ¼ cup pecans, finely diced
  • 2 Tbsp shredded coconut
  • Kaiser rolls


Mix everything through the cherries in a large mixing bowl. If desired pulse the salad in batches in a mini food chopper to make smoother. Stir in the pecans and coconut. Spread on rolls or bread of choice.

Makes 3 sandwiches.
