Crop Share Cooking Continues...Lemon Basil Chicken Salad

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.

  • 2 ribs minced celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped cashews
