For the Sandwiches:

  1. To make the Mint-Cilantro Sauce, add all ingredients except the olive oil into the bowl of a stand mixer. Use the whisk attachment to mix together. On medium speed, gradually drizzle in the olive oil. Whisk for 2 minutes. Set aside.
  2. To make the Chicken Salad, add the cooked and chopped chicken into a separate large mixing bowl. Add in the finely chopped celery, grapes, onions, dill pickles, cilantro, and (optional) chopped nuts. Toss to combine.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, dijon mustard, and yogurt. Add into the chicken salad bowl with 1/4 cup of the Mint-Cilantro Sauce. Toss until the chicken is well coated in the sauces.
  4. To assemble the sandwiches, slice the croissant 3/4th of the way to create a slit-like opening. Add a small slather of the Mint-Cilantro Sauce on the bottom piece, then a layer of Bibb lettuce and a generous portion of the chicken salad. Enjoy!
