I recommend our Wutta Nut! Butter and Sea Salt flavor. The deep-roasted flavor adds a new dimension to this lunch and party favorite.

Chicken salad is a comfort food that’s simple yet stylish and always a big party favorite, just like me. This is one you can sit on a bed of lettuce, spoon onto crackers, or spread across slices of bread.
