Rotisserie Chicken Salad and Cucumber Bites

Rotisserie Chicken and Cucumber

Summer has officially arrived in Texas and it’s hot as hell. The usual heavy culinary fare doesn’t really satiate my palite in the 100+ degree, super dry temperatures so I try to stick to lighter snacks. I made these delicious little treats a few months back and thought they would be perfect for a summer snack by the pool.

The watery cucumber pairs beautifully with the ripe avocado and chicken salad. The only reason I minced the bell pepper for a garnish was to bring some color to the pics but it topped off the dish perfectly!

Her new series Snackin’ with Sarah Sellers delivers a new snack idea before each live Idol show from now until the season finale in May. So, what this means is I’ve had to get my little tush in gear and start creating some fun filled recipes for your reality snacking pleasure.
