Chicken salad is one of those great meals that everyone loves. Fancy enough to stuff in a croissant for a party treat and elegant enough to serve in a bowl for a holiday dinner, chicken salad is perfect and crowd pleasing.
This recipe for chicken salad is the best I’ve ever had. It’s so good, in fact, that I made a batch to write this article, and then ate the entire bowl by myself throughout the week! Along with being scrumptious, it is super easy to make. You can whip up a batch start to finish in under an hour. Better yet, the recipe is quick to double—or triple or quadruple. So it's ideal if you’re interested in serving it up for a party (or for nibbling on all week long).
What makes this the best chicken salad ever? It’s not just fast to make. It tastes absolutely splendid with a delicious blend of flavors. There’s the tender bite of boiled chicken, the salty kiss of cashews, the sweet pop of red grapes, the glorious crunch of tart apples—all coated in a lime-dill mayonnaise speckled with fresh dill. It isn’t just good. It’s the best chicken salad ever. And you can quote me on that.
