Chicken Salad

Instead of buying sandwiches or making turkey sandwiches, Todd & I decided to make homemade chicken salad sandwiches to take on our picnic on Memorial Day. I love chicken salad but had never made my own. Once we chopped the ingredients and cooked the chicken, we put all the ingredients in a food processor, except the mayo, and it was ready to eat! My favorite part of the chicken salad were the bits of almonds to add crunch and pieces of pineapple to add some sweetness.
