Wash your celery and chop it up! Here I might add, if you have a small Granny Smith or any not so sweet apple, chop that up and you may add to your salad as well. This is optional.

Toss celery and chicken into a bowl. I added 1/3 cup mayo and 1/3 cup sour cream. You can do all mayo, but I substitute sour cream to make it a bit lighter.

A palmful of pine nuts.. For more flavor you can toast these guys in a pan. But be very careful, they burn very easily. Lightly toast them to brown a bit. Don't worry if some burn a little bit.
