Marcy's Chicken Salad

Who can cook when it's melt-your-eyeballs hot outside? As record heat sweeps much of the country, there are probably countless people thinking - how about ice cream for dinner? Well put the hot fudge sauce away because here's a simple throw together no-recipe recipe that you customize based on your taste. My mom's friend, Marcy, doesn't like to cook therefore she doesn't linger in the kitchen. Good thing she makes a mean chicken salad which can stand in for a quick oven-less dinner. You'll notice that I just list ingredients and, for the most part, left out exact measurements because you just add as much as you like of each item. How easy?! Serve this on fresh rolls or lettuce cups and stay cool.

Marcy's Chicken Salad

4 cooked chicken breasts (rotisserie chicken can be your best friend here!)
Seedless Engish cucumber - seeded and chopped finely
Clausen (a must!) dill pickles, chopped
Red & Yellow pepper, chopped
Celery - chopped
green onions - chopped
mayo - enough to moisten
salt/pepper to taste
dried dill

Mix well and serve on rolls or lettuce cups.
