I saw Giada make these Chicken Salad Pinwheels on her rock climbing episode a few weeks ago. These pinwheels and the fig bars that followed immediately went on my list of recipes to make.
I love chicken salad…it’s my go to lunch order. In all honesty, I don’t know what attracted me to this particular recipe because I absolutely despise mustard. Like can not take a bite of the stuff kind of hate. But for whatever reason I went with it. Maybe it was the honey-mustard combo, but I’m not sure. After all was said and done I could not bring myself to eat more than a bite or two only because the mustard freaked me out. I have problems. However my mom loved them so I know that I found a good recipe.
In other news…did anybody notice the cute plate the pinwheels are pictured on? I was so excited to finally have a recipe that could utilize that plate. I went to West Elm about a month ago and they were sold out. Huge bummer. But I was set on getting it so I ordered it online and my heart totally melted when it shipped to my house. I love a dog in a fedora. Too cute for words.
