Expert Tips

  • Stuff chicken salad in hollowed out tomatoes or avocado halves for a fresh take on lunch.
  • Avoiding bread? Make lettuce wraps, drizzling the salad with your favorite vinaigrette before rolling the lettuce.
  • Fat-free mayonnaise can be used instead of mayonnaise.
  • Substitute 1 1/2 cups chopped fully cooked ham for the chicken. Omit salt and pepper. Stir in 1 teaspoon yellow mustard.
  • Substitute 2 cans (5 oz each) tuna in water, drained, for the chicken. Stir in 1 teaspoon lemon juice.
  • Substitute 6 Hard-Cooked Eggs, chopped, for the chicken.
