Pineapple Chicken Salad

When I am traveling, I like to eat quick meals at unique places. One day while driving down the interstate, I decided to stop at a well-known deli for lunch. I ordered what I thought was going to be a typical chicken salad sandwich, only to be pleasantly surprised to receive a wonderful salad filled with pineapple. I immediately loved the sweetness of the pineapple with the creaminess of the mayonaise based salad all contrasting with the vine rippend tomato, buttery leaf lettuce, and crunchy wheat toast. While low on ingredients, this salad is over-the-top on taste. I think what I like the most is the simplicity. No ingredient overpowers another yet they all work together to create a perfect balance in your mouth. This recipe is a great one to have in your pocket for using up leftover roasted chicken breast, serving at holiday gatherings, or just as a lunchbox staple. You can also add chopped celery or toasted slivered almonds, if you like, but I really enjoy the simplicity these few ingredients offer.
