Summer is coming up and that means graduations, road trips, picnics, the possibilities to spend time outdoors are endless! Being outdoors, I always get hungry, don't you get hungry? Whether you are attending a graduation party, or just want to have a picnic alongside the road on your way to the beach or the family vacation, you need sustenance. You need fuel to enjoy the summer activities, or endure that long and windy road up to the mountain cabin. The best summer foods for these events are easy, on the go, not very messy type of picnic snacks. I have the perfect recipe for you, curried chicken salad, that you can dip with Nabisco snacks or spoon the salad on top of them. Then to polish it off a nice cold Coca-Cola™ and for a sweet treat, OREOs.

Stater Bros has a Snack Center inside the store to find all these great products so if you are craving that Coca-Cola or that sleeve of OREOs, you don't have to hunt throughout the day, just go to the Snack Center and they will be there!
"In May, save $2 when you buy any four (4) Coca-Cola .5L/6pk, 6pk glass, mini-cans and Nabisco family size or 12 count single serve products and in June two (2) for $6 mix and match Coke .5L/6pk and Nabisco Toasted Chips with Digital Deals"







Now to make the curried chicken salad, you need some chicken breast, mayonnaise, dried cranberries, chopped walnuts, curry powder and frozen peas.


Cook the chicken breasts on a skillet with a little salt and pepper until completely cooked. Let the chicken rest for a few minutes then chop it up into bite size pieces. 
In a large mixing bowl, add about 1/2 cup of mayo and add in 1 tablespoon of curry powder, more or less depending on how much curry taste you like.


You add in 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, 1/4 cup dried cranberries and stir until completely combined.



 Add in the chopped chicken and give it a quick stir.

Last, add in the frozen peas about another 1/4 cup and stir.

I make this salad a few hours in advance of when I am planning on serving it to allow the peas to defrost in the salad. Or you can make the salad overnight if you are planning on leaving early in the morning for your summer road trip, just remember because of the mayonnaise to pack the salad on some ice. 

When ready to serve, scoop up the curried chicken salad using your Nabisco snack or use a spoon to top a Nabisco snack with the salad, then eat and enjoy! This curried chicken salad is perfect for an along side the road road trip lunch. Then as I mentioned a perfect accompaniment is a Coca-Cola, a Coca-Cola Zero™or a Diet Coke®. Then a perfect sweet treat ending is an OREO!


What snacks or on the go meals can you make from the snack center at Stater Bros for your upcoming road trip or graduation party or Memorial Day feast?

That salad sounds yummy! I don't like mayo but I'm sure with Greek yogurt it would be good too!

I make chicken salad a lot but have never done curry chicken salad. I love the addition of the cranberries, peas and walnuts. It sounds perfect with Triscuits. {client}
