diced cold, cooked chicken
green onions, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
A winner in my house! Of course, I altered a bit (I adapted it for 2 people)...
1. I used 1 grilled chicken breast from the prepared foods section of the grocery store
2. Diced red onion instead of green
3. I added about a teaspoon of honey to the oil and vinegar
4. I added about 2 handfuls of baby spinach.
I liked this one, but a bit oily. If I make it again, I would add equal parts of the vinegar and oil.
This is really delicious! I left out the celery and used 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion instead of the green. I also switched measurments and used 3 Tbs olive oil, and 5 Tbs balsamic vinegar.
I served it on top of a green salad, which then didn't need any extra dressing. A great healthy and unusual alternative to mayonnaise-y chicken salad; I'll be making it again next time i picnic!
Great Salad... I have been making this for a long time. Mine is slightly different. I omit celery but i add dried cranberries and use a green apple. Also I add a clove of garlic as well as honey to the dressing. (Garlic honey balsamic dressing) The tart cranberries and apple add a nice contrast to the semi sweet and garlicy dressing.
Thanks for the recipe. Everyone that tried the chicken salad loved it. The only thing I changed was not using walnuts in the recipe. Someone I know has an allergy to nuts. I am definitely making it again and again. Pluse it is soo quick and easy. Thank you for the recipe. I am tired of mayo. based chicken salad.
I loved this recipe. I added 1 tablespoon of honey and it tasted great.
A great alternative to chicken salad made with mayonnaise. We had cooked chicken in the frige and while I was out my husband made this; it's that easy! He used a little regular onion since we didn't have green onion and it was DELICIOUS!
This truly is the best Chicken Salad I have ever tasted and so easy to make.
