Inspired by the idea of making pita pockets with my new sourdough starter, I decided to make chicken salad to go along with it. After three days of anticipating a chicken salad sandwich, I was really craving it, and this recipe did not disappoint when I made it Tuesday evening after a full day of packing orders and making deliveries! It only made 2 servings though, so in the future I will double it to have enough for leftovers.
Herbed Chicken Salad
1/3 cup mayonnaise (I use avocado oil mayonnaise)
1/3 cup plain yogurt (you could probably substitute sour cream if you prefer)
1/2 T lemon juice
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp raw local honey
1/2 tsp salt
1 T. minced fresh dill or 1/2 tsp dried dill
1 minced green onion (white and green part)
2 1/2 cups chicken, diced
Mix everything and serve! I especially liked mine served with cucumbers inside the pita pocket- a crisp, juicy addition to a flavorful filling inside a homemade sourdough pita pocket.
