  2. Add celery, red onion, and almonds to the bowl with the chicken. Toss in mayonnaise, lime juice, cumin, chili powder, and cilantro. Season with additional salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Add additional mayonnaise if salad seems too dry.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for about 1 hour. Serve chilled.
