We are huge fans of Chicken salads, but coming up with new ideas are not always that easy.

Fortunately, we have a few recipes which are always welcome, like this Chicken and Nectarine Salad

I am sure by now you must have noticed that I meant what I said a few posts back, that we really like our salads for lunch or as a light dinner.

This year we were also extremely in luck with Nectarines, which could be difficult to find in stores some years.

Even our peaches were in abundance, but I prefer Nectarines to peaches in a salad.

Peaches, to me, are more for baking and desserts, or eating fresh as is.

Fresh peaches bring back lots of memories of my Grandparents which I will always cherish. My late Grandfather had one peach tree, just the one, but had the most delicious, plump and juicy peaches.

The Grapes together with the Nectarines makes a wonderful combination in this Chicken Salad.

You can always substitute the Arugula greens for your favorite – I am just (extremely) partial to Arugula in Salads or on Burgers.

You can also use any cooked Chicken, grilled, baked, leftover or store-bought rotisserie Chicken.

I like the Chicken Spice, as it adds just the right taste, and try to use to use it as often as I can, or I should say, have time to cook the Chicken myself.
