Amber asked for Chicken Salad the other day for lunch. "But not just boring chicken salad Mom, make it interesting." So I did some searches and found a recipe to adapt from on WomansDay.com. It seems lighter than a traditional chicken salad due to the sour cream I think, and if you're like some of my readers who think mayo is of the devil, I would think you could substitue the small amount of that with more sour cream also.

When it’s hot outside, cooking hot meals can feel like a chore – so it’s no wonder summer is the most popular season for salads. The thing is, if you’re like me, you often find yourself tossing the same ingredients together over and over again.
