Chicken Salad Crostinis
Today isn’t just an ordinary Monday. Nope, not even one bit. It’s a very special, special Monday because….IT’S IN HONOR OF JULIE’S UPCOMING WEDDING!
I mean, I don’t even know what to say about Julie besides I would be completely lost without her! She’s always there for me, offering sage advice, pieces of encouragement and a laugh. Our daily text messages have me in tears they are so funny. I swear Julie and I are twin sisters separated at birth. We are literally the same person. You only meet a once in a lifetime friend, once in a lifetime and Julie is definitely one of those kind of friends. I know we’ll be texting & talking trash for the rest of our lives 🙂 When I tried to think of something to make for a bridal shower, I kept going back to these amazing chicken salad crostinis I made two weeks ago. Not only would Julie and I eat 1500 of these while gossiping over wine, these would be a fabulous addition to any bridal shower!
I’m seriously addicted to chicken salad lately. It’s weird, it’s the only thing I’ve been craving lately. Well that and pho. I want a big, steaming bowl of pho and a chicken salad sammie. Which as you know, totally go together so perfectly. And no, I’m not pregnant. I just have the weirdest, most absurd cravings ever. Well to satisfy my craving without eating 14,000 grams of carbs, I decided to top a simple and small slice of french bread with a big heaping spoonful of chicken salad.
Another reason I love chicken salad is that it reminds me of spring and summer. We’d always have picnics by a small little beach we had in Cleveland and there would always be a giant tupperware filled with chicken salad. I feel like you can’t have a picnic or a low-key outdoor lunch without it. Now, the one thing I have to be very strict on, NO GRAPES. They belog in wine, not on a sandwich.
So here’s to you Julie! Hope you have the best day OF your life and you enjoy every little second. And you better believe we’ll have a few of these crostinis with a few more glasses of bubbly to celebrate after the honeymoon 🙂
