Chicken Salad Tacos

Hi there friends!  It’s Taco Tuesday!

This idea for tacos may seem a little odd, but these are great for lunch on a hot summer day.  The chicken salad is cool, crunchy and has a nice fresh flavor.

Just serve them with a nice, tall glass of cold iced tea and you’ll be able to face the hot afternoon without feeling “overfull”.

You’ll want to make the chicken salad a few hours before lunch so that it has time to get nice and cold and for the flavors to combine.

Here you go…
