As fantastic as this recipe is, as written, I've found it to be versatile as well. I had some left over roasted chicken, and decide I wanted to make a quick chicken salad out of. I reduced the menu for 4 servings, and used: 1/2 tsp of McCormick Garlic and Herb seasoning in place of, Fresh Rosemary. 1/2 Cup of chopped almonds instead of walnuts. 1/4 cup of Feta instead of Blue Cheese. I didn't add any salt because of the saltiness of the Feta, but did use fresh cracked black pepper. What a fantastic recipe! It would work great as an appetizer, or a dip, and the only thing that I might seriously consider adding to it would be a tbsp or a 1/4 cup of raisuns to it. Toasted wheat bread, or crescent rolls with lettuce and tomato for a great sandwhich. I highly recommend this recipe both "as is," or to experiment with!
I was not impressed with this chicken salad. The rosemary was overwhelming.
I made this recipe, except I tossed in some golden rasins, it was fantastic!
This was very good. Reviewers who found the rosemary to be overwhelming may not have been using fresh rosemary -- if you are going to use dried rosemary you need to reduce the amount to one teaspoon. My husband doesn't like nuts, so I left them out of his portion. He tried one bite with walnuts in it; he agreed that the walnuts are needed to balance the intensity of the blue cheese taste, but thought perhaps raisins might do the same thing. I might add some halved grapes or some raisins next time.
Loved it, Not generally a fan of chicken salad, but this stuff is fabulous!
This was delicious! I didn't have the walnuts so I added chopped cashews instead which worked quite well for me. I also added a single serving sized tin of drained fruit cocktail for added taste. I will definitely be making it again and may just add toasted sesame seeds as well. I took the accompanying photo and that is tomato aspic on the side. (Recipe for that is under review!)
I liked this a lot, but I think the rosemary was a bit out of place. Other than the rosemary, I think this was a real hit!
I was a little disappointed with this recipe. I thought I would love the combination of ingredients, but it was way too nutty. I couldn't finish it because all I could taste were the walnuts. If they were decreased to maybe 1/2 cup, this would have been good.
