Min's Cashew Chicken Salad

This is a recipe I came up with when I couldn't find a decent serving of chicken salad. It is scrumptious.

Start with 1 whole roasted chicken, deboned and chopped in a fairly small dice. I'd say about 1/2-inch or less. (you can also use 1/2 the chicken if you don't want a lot. But I think you will want as much of this as you can get.) Place chicken in a large bowl.

Add to chicken:

Diced celery, about 4 to 6 stalks (or so) for a whole chicken, or to taste

Chopped cashews, at least 1 cup (I used two big handfuls this time)

Green onions, chopped, probably half a bunch, more or less (about 6)

You can see that there's a good mix of ingredients, lots of celery, cashews, etc. to complement the chicken.

A healthy amount of real mayonnaise (1 cup? enough to coat--you'll know. Remember, you can always add more but you can't take it out if you've added too much)

Mix this all together and taste a spoonful. It should be delicious and crunchy and flavorful. (See how you can still see the colors below, you can tell it's coated but not too much).

I serve this on little dinner rolls, as sandwiches.
