1/2

Leaf lettuce, if desired

Expert Tips

Make this salad up to 24 hours before serving. If needed, stir in a few drops of milk to make it creamy again.

For fewer calories, use reduced-fat or fat-free mayonnaise.

No leftover cooked chicken on hand? You can buy frozen chopped cooked chicken, canned chunk chicken or rotisserie chicken.
