This crowd-pleasing recipe for classic chicken salad is perfect for sandwiches, salads, and snacking. Bits of celery, relish, and fresh herbs add texture and flavor while Dijon mustard and lemon juice add a tangy bite. Enjoy it just as it is, or add nuts or fruits. My favorite way to eat this is on toasted wheat bread with lettuce and tomato alongside a healthy serving of potato chips!

Pecan Chicken Salad with Apples and Grapes

Use a rotisserie chicken from the grocery, or make your own roasted chicken, for this recipe. The fruit brings a slightly sweet taste, and the celery and pecans give great texture. This chicken salad is right at home on a croissant for lunch, or on a bed of lettuce with a side of cantaloupe for brunch.

Chicken and Egg Salad

I made this chicken and egg salad while looking for a chicken salad with lots of protein and no sweet stuff.
