Honey Mustard Chicken Salad

I am super into chicken salad as of late. Cranberry Walnut, Pesto, Apple Dill… you name it. Now that I make my own mayo it’s great. I don’t need to worry about using ingredients I’m not thrilled about, and can get pretty creative! But, I don’t always have the mayo on hand and for those moments I go honey mustard. It is so good. I love the addition of roasted red peppers and cilantro in it, like really really love those flavors together.
