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.
