Basil Cashew Chicken Salad

Total Time

I love basil and chicken together, and chicken and cashew together, so it was natural to put it *all* together into this tasty sandwich filling!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients; the filling tastes even better when it's had a chance to chill thoroughly, but often I eat it right away.
  2. Goes well on croissant or in a pita.
  3. Makes about 4 servings.

This salad perked my taste buds up. The ingredients are unusual for me but actually went together just fine. I used left-over chicken breast and brown rice. I made it in the evening and let it refrigerate overnight. I made croissant sandwiches with it which was a very good idea. Thanks Julesong.

Very yummy. I made some changes just to avoid a trip to the store. The turkey was leftover smoked, the rice was half brown/half wild, I used 2 Tbls. minced fresh onion, and I only had Miracle Whip. The rest stayed as written. What a wonderful treat. The combination of flavors just gets better the longer it refrigerates. I'll be making this often.

I have made this several times. The flavors blend so well together. The second time I made it I added a teaspoon of white wine vinegar. My family is not big on any dish made with rice, so the last time I made this I used half a package of bow-tie pasta which they really seemed to like. I for sure will be making this salad again. Thanks Julesong!
