Ingredients for Success

Make Your Dressing

The dressing is the heart of this chicken salad. Combine Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, and Dijon mustard for a creamy base. Add a pinch of salt, a dash of sugar, and sprinkle in some onion and garlic powders. The result? A luxurious, savory-sweet dressing that you’ll be tempted to eat by the spoonful.

Chop It Up!

For the best texture, cube your chicken instead of shredding it. This keeps the salad from becoming too thick and sticky.

Essential Elements

For the classic chicken salad experience, ensure you include:

  • Something Sweet: Think apples, grapes, or dried cherries.
  • Something Crunchy: Celery or diced onions work perfectly.
  • Something Nutty: Cashews, almonds, or pistachios add a lovely crunch and depth.

My personal favorite combo is grapes, celery, and cashews. This mix never fails to impress, but feel free to experiment with your favorite ingredients.

Mix and Season

Combine the chicken, sweet, crunchy, and nutty elements with your dressing. Season to taste with salt and pepper. For an extra burst of flavor, I like to add freeze-dried chives and white pepper, which keeps the salad looking fresh and vibrant.

Enjoy!

Your Super Yummy Chicken Salad is ready to devour! Enjoy it on a croissant for a delightful luncheon sandwich, wrap it in lettuce or whole wheat tortillas, dip into it with crackers (Everything Seasoned crackers are amazing), or eat it plain.
