The History:
The chicken salad is a snowboarding original, and was invented in 1989/90 by Jason Ford and Jeff Brushie during a trampoline session at Andy Coghlan’s trampoline in Vermont. According to Brushie, “Andy named it after a sandwich that he loved from the Mobile Mart across the street from the Boarding House in Burlington.”
