Yes, buying organic/NON-GMO is expensive. Until there is a big change in food production and what consumers buy, healthy choices will always be more expensive. If you want to start small with organic…here are some great tips.

Pesto Chicken Salad — 14 Comments

  1. Yum, pesto anything is always a big hit over here. I actually just tried another new chicken salad using hummus instead of mayo and it was terrific.

  2. I was so happy to find this recipe. I have a mountain load of basil this year, and have been telling myself to preserve it by making pesto, but really, just how much pesto can a girl eat? I know, I know, it will freeze beautifully, but sometimes I just want to use it in a recipe that I can have NOW! I’ll be trying this over the weekend. It sounds amazing.

  3. What a great Chicken Salad, Karen, it looks delicious. Thanks so much for sharing this awesome recipe with us at Full Plate Thursday!
