Your best chicken salad recipe

Hi, since it has been so hot out lately, I was thinking about making some chicken salad. I would appreciate if a few of you could share your favorite versions to give me some ideas. Thanks! =0)

  1. It's a bit ubiquitous but I still love curry chicken salad. I use fat free yogurt and store bought rotisserie chicken and add madras curry powder. Add herbs like cilantro and fruits like mango even improve the flavor.

    1. re: digkv

      That sounds great and is actually exactly what I was craving...a curry chicken salad. Thank you for sharing.

    2. So many great combos, but...

      Chicken (obviously), mayo, celery, dried reconstituted cranberries, [pecans for those that like them], poppy seeds, honey, S & P.

      1. Homemade mayonnaise with wasabi and lots of scallion. Maybe a touch of soy sauce.

        1. This chicken salad with grapes and walnuts is very good...

          1. I love a very simple chicken salad with mayonnaise, a little dab of mustard, salt and pepper, maybe a squeeze of lemon juice, fresh tarragon and chopped toasted walnuts.
