Chicken Salad with Rosemary and Almonds

Borrowed from my divine Aunt Jen, who I believe borrowed from the divine Contessa Ina. Everything is eyeballed and to taste, really. You can usually find smoked almonds in the candy/snacks aisle, not the baking aisle, of the grocery store. I love them with the dried cherries. One of my favorite aspects of this recipe is having the leftover almonds and cherries around just for snacking.

  • 1/4-1/2 c. sour cream
  • 1/4-1/2 c. mayonaise
  • Cooked chicken (from a roasted chicken, store bought rotisserie chicken, whatever). 4 cups-ish?
  • 1/2 c. chopped smoked almonds
  • 1/2 c. chopped dried cherries
  • 1-2 tbs. chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 c. finely diced red or sweet onion
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • In small bowl, mix together mayo and sour cream.
  • Dump rest of ingredients in large bowl, add mayo/sour cream and mix.
  • Serve on croissants, wraps, rolls or just a bed of lettuce.
