New Years Chicken Salad!

Happy New Years to everyone!! Today's recipe is the perfect light meal to start the new year off right. I wish I had started this years blogging off right also, but here is what happened.~I put this chicken salad recipe together. As I was just about done, I realized I had no cheese. I mean, you don't need cheese, but I think it adds a lot to the recipe. So I went to the store and picked up the cheese. Of course, you know I couldn't buy just cheese! Oh no, I had to spend 30 minutes, just browsing, picking up this and that, basically accomplishing nothing. I get home, and I make the sandwich, take the pictures, and begin to eat my creation. What's wrong?~Where is the avocado? I have to have the avocado on this sandwich. It's healthy. It's good for me. It has to be a part of this sandwich. Also, I love avocados, and I try to eat one everyday. I have to have the avocado.!!! So I make another sandwich. No problem, they are little, after all. And most of the pictures are of the ingredients being put together, so this can still work!!  I take the pictures of the avocado on the sandwich. They look really nice. I'm using a new camera I got from my husband for Christmas. I love this camera. It works great, and takes better pictures than my last camera! So, now I am downloading the pictures onto my computer from the card. Everything is good. I start to write this post. I go to put the pictures on my post~There are no pictures! What!!  What is happening? I find out that I have erased every picture having to do with this recipe!! I can't believe it! I just sit here dumbfounded for a few minutes. Then I figure, I better at least make another sandwich so I can photograph it! The good news? I downloaded Christmas pictures onto my computer at the same time, and I didn't lose any of those!! So, all was not lost! So, I am sorry for the lack of pictures for this post. I will try to make up for it next time!

This chicken salad recipe is one I came up with as an alternative to using mayo. I love everything in this recipe, and it is really good anytime of year. I hope you like it also!
