Summer Chicken Salad (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free, Soy-Free and Nightshade-Free)

I often make sandwich salads.  The kind of salad you put on a sandwich, tuna salad, ham salad, and chicken salad.  It helps to have something prepped to have for lunch or a snack for when days get busy.  I like this salad by itself, with some salad greens from the garden, or on a slice of gluten-free bread.

If you are nightshade-free make sure to check your mayonnaise.  I make my own mayonnaise using sunflower oil, eggs, and lemon juice.  If you are using store bought lok for one without paprika.
