Chopped Chicken Salad with Cashew Honey Mustard

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.



Once in a while, I just want a really good salad. This chopped chicken salad combines some of my favorite salad ingredients. I’m a sucker for a combination of fruits and veggies when I make a salad. I think it’s that touch of sweetness I crave from the fruit that gets my wheels turning. From blueberries and strawberries to cabbage and cucumber, this salad has it all. It’s topped with a homemade cashew butter honey mustard that may just be the simplest salad dressing you will ever make. The sky is the limit with chopped salads. You can put just about anything you like in them which makes them one of the most versatile recipes on the planet. I like to throw whatever is left over in the fridge (and on the verge of going bad) in my chopped salads. It’s a great way to use up leftovers. It’s also a quick and simple dinner solution on busy weeknights. We paired this salad with a great Double Rye IPA, so read ahead for more!







Beer Love:

Beer: He’Brew/Cathedral Square St. Lenny’s Double IPA
Brewed By: Shmaltz Brewing Company
Style: American Double / Imperial IPA
ABV: 10.0%
Description: This Belgian-Style Double Rye IPA is spectacular. I wanted something on the hoppy side for this food pairing. This ale is hoppy, but it is also so much more than that. With malty notes and citrusy aromas, this beer is the perfect pairing for a light and refreshing salad. It also has just a touch of sweetness that you crave with a hoppier brew. It’s one of a kind and a great double rye IPA all around. I highly recommend giving it a go if you haven’t yet! It won’t last long, as it is limited. Act quickly before it’s too late!
