Well, hello there. Look, I didn’t mysteriously disappear for days this time! That’s an achievement, given how I’ve done the disappearing act quite a few times in the last couple of months. And today I’ve got such a delicious and versatile recipe for you – Creamy Chicken Hazelnut Salad.

I actually made this Creamy Chicken Hazelnut Salad way back in May and it’s been sitting in my draft folder for ages. Partly due to my secret and also partly due to procrastination.

Creamy Chicken Hazelnut Salad

If you know me in person, you know I’m a professional procrastinator.

In fact, if professional procrastinator was a career option, I would probably be ruling the world or something.

Except, I’d also procrastinate my ruling duties (unless they involved eating and watching series), because that’s what procrastinators are best at. Haha.

While I’ve certainly become a bit productive in the last few days, that certainly doesn’t mean I’m willing to spend too much time in the kitchen, especially given how hot it is these days. Basically the world is melting (dramatic much) and while I would love to live on ice cream and orange juice that’s not very sustainable in the long run.

Creamy Chicken Hazelnut Salad

So this Creamy Chicken Hazelnut Salad is the perfect solution. It might not be the healthiest salad in the world, but it certainly is one of the easiest and most delicious! And I’m sure you’ll agree with me, once you make this super duper creamy chicken salad.

Pile up this Creamy Chicken Hazelnut Salad on top of thick pillowy bread, or wrap it up in a tortilla, it’s delicious either way.

The salad is super easy, so I’m not going to go much into details on how its made because that’s what the recipe card is for. But I have only one instruction that I want you to follow, PLEASE do add hazelnuts because the extra crunch and nuttiness is mind blowingly delicious!

If you don’t like hazelnuts, walnuts would be a great substitution too!

I do hope you try this Creamy Chicken Hazelnut Salad, because there’s still a whole month of summer left, and you should make the most of it. 🙂
