Cajunville Chicken Salad

Our favorite farmers market is the Red Stick Farmers Market in downtown Baton Rouge, LA.  Local fresh produce, meats, cheese, eggs, and other products are available year round.  At a recent visit we purchased a chicken, bag of sweet onions, red sweet peppers along with other items.  Once home we decided to use our purchases to make Chicken Salad.  This salad can also be made using leftover chicken.
