If you've never tried lemon basil please do.  This intoxicating herb livens up just about anything.  It's distinctly lemony aroma and sweetness are a perfect addition to chicken salad.  I have adapted this recipe from our Crop Share suppliers, North Creek Community Farm.


Lemon Basil Chicken Salad


  • 4 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 2 ribs minced celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped cashews
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

  • 1/4 cup lemon basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste



In a medium bowl, combine chicken, celery, lemon basil and cashews. In a small bowl, combine sour cream, mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Add to chicken mixture, tossing gently to coat. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
