Vermonter Chicken Salad

This recipe is inspired by one of the most delicious sandwiches I have ever eaten! I went to college in Burlington, Vermont...home to the Red Onion Cafe. ( 

The Red Onion is famous for their gourmet sandwiches...most notably the AAAMAZING "Red Onion"...Which is perfection on toast! In between the nutty, toasted bread there's turkey, bacon, apples, red onions, sun-dried tomato mayo and Vermont maple cheddar are all piled high! The sandwich is served warm and is absolutely to die mouth is watering just thinking about it! 

Here is my tasty tribute to the Red Onion...

You'll Need -

2 Cups of Roasted Chicken
3 Strips of Bacon (use turkey bacon to cut back on fat and calories)
1 Small Granny Smith Apple
1/4 Cup Red Onion
6 Sun-Dried Tomatoes (rinsed)
1/4 Cup Light Mayo
Salt & Pepper

Directions -

Chop the first 5 ingredients and place them into a mixing bowl. Add the mayo and mix until combined evenly. Season with salt & pepper to taste.

I love this chicken salad on top of a fresh garden salad, scooped up on wheat thins or along side fresh veggies...or...serve between some toasted whole grain bread with melted cheddar cheese and create your own yummy version of the beloved Red Onion Sandwich!!
