Hawaiian Chicken Salad with pineapple, macadamia nuts, and fresh herbs. A lighter version of a classic salad with Hawaiian flavors!
I’m not crazy about most fast food restaurants or even fast casual restaurants. I would rather make a fresh and flavorful meal at home. Chipotle is always an exception because I can never turn down a burrito bowl with guacamole. And the other exception is a local restaurant that serves fifteen different types of chicken salad. I dream about this place. Everyone can find a flavor that they love, but my personal favorite is the chicken salad with pineapple and macadamia nuts. I recreated my own version of the salad and added a subtle spicy kick with cayenne pepper.
Chicken salad makes a great lunch for both kids and adults. Chicken salad on a croissant is the best thing ever. I also love to serve it with salad greens or crackers. The addition of the pineapple and macadamia nuts adds a tropical element to a classic recipe.
For this recipe, I used my new #OXOCookware Stainless Steel Pro 3.5 Qt Sauce Pan. I’ve always been a huge fan of OXO products and was excited when I heard about their new line of cookware. A heat aluminum core is fused between two layers of stainless steel to ensure even cooking from every side. I love that it has markings on the interior walls for measuring liquid ingredients and is also dishwasher safe. The glass lids are even oven safe up to 430 degrees Fahrenheit so the cookware easily moves from stovetop to oven. To test out my new pan, I made a classic dish with Hawaiian flavors.
