Pesto Chicken Salad

Pesto Chicken Salad – When I saw this recipe pop up in my Google Reader from Proceed With Caution, I knew I had to make it for lunch one week! It had all flavors that I love, pesto, olives…yum! My mouth is watering thinking about it! Definitely try this one soon. I ate it for several lunches one week with crackers or on a sandwich thin.

The original recipe calls for traditional pesto. I had sun-dried tomato and basil pesto in the freezer, so I used that. The recipe below reflects my changes.
