Chicken and Chickpea Salad Recipe

By  | 

Sponsored post by Mirum Shopper, but as always, all opinions are my own.

What do potato salad, devilled eggs, BLTs, chicken salad, and Buffalo chicken cheese dip have in common?

They’re all on my families’ list of favorite tastes. Yours, too?

I think it has something to do with the creamy goodness of mayonnaise. It seems to show up on the best-dressed dishes with great regularity!

What makes mayonnaise so good? Hellmann’s Organic Mayonnaise (or Best Foods, depending on where you live) includes organic cage-free eggs, organic expeller-pressed oil but no artificial flavors or preservatives.

As for me and mine, we love this chicken and chickpea salad. It’s just one of the hundreds of ways to enjoy chicken. The distinct flavor of chickpeas is enhanced with the greens, feta, fresh mint, and onion.  The goodness of mayonnaise crowns it for a delightfully fresh and satisfying meal.

This salad is a quick fix, too. Some days that means everything!
