Mom's Chicken Salad: A Salad for Chicks

34


This recipe has five main ingredients and is versatile enough that you can work with what you have on hand. It's a great one to make ahead if you have a girly-friend coming over for lunch or tea. I think it seems a bit fancy because of the grapes.

I've made it a tad healthier than my Mom's version by cutting the mayo with yogurt. You could probably cut out the mayo completely just double the yogurt and be sure to compensate with a little extra seasoning.

I like to serve this to my lady friends with mini croissants or rice crackers.

For this recipe I used two chicken breasts that I poached myself. But you can use any type of cooked chicken- a great way to use leftovers!

(Feel free to experiment with other ingredients like onion or shredded carrots depending on what you have in the kitchen.)

  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
