Chicken Salad Crostini with Strawberries

I recently decided to convert a chicken salad wraps recipe that I love into more of an appetizer. I made this Chicken Salad Crostini with Strawberries. As summer winds down, this dish is perfect to serve at a pool party or other summer gathering.  It looks great and is easy to grab a bite while you have other activities going on.  It also comes together really quickly thanks to Swanson’s canned chicken.

With my other recipe, I had to place the chicken in the food processor but this step it isn’t necessary with using the canned chicken.  It helps this to come together quicker. Plus, there are less dishes to wash.  I was also able to get my baguette already sliced up from my grocery store for the same price.  This was something that saved me even more time with this Chicken Salad Crostini with Strawberries.

The fun thing about his chicken salad is it incorporates strawberries.  The strawberries work so well in this.  I just placed a slice on top of each crostini, but you could always dice up the strawberries if you prefer.

I love the wrap recipe you mentioned – an all time favorite 🙂 I will say I am not a fan of the canned chicken (made a whole batch of the wraps with it once for a party and threw them away before the guests came!) but it is a fantastic recipe 🙂

Sounds great! I love poppy seed dressing, it goes on almost all of my salads I make at home. This sounds like it would be great on a croissant.
