I found the orange almonds next to the produce at Walmart. I know that it seems kinda weird to put emphasis on the almonds, but they truly make the whole salad pop a little more. It’s one of the pieces that make the salad even better for summertime. 
Sean and I had chicken salad sandwiches at our wedding reception so it’s always had a place in our heart. Does that sound dumb to have sentimental feelings toward food?!
