Tonight’s Dinner – Gourmet Chicken Salad

Posted by reeeeeen on July 25, 2007

I love this chicken salad.  It’s my own recreation of a deli chicken salad I used to have when I was growing up.  This place was a hole in the wall, nothing glamourous.  It was the first time I’d seen anyone put anything other than onion and celery into chicken salad though.  The taste stuck with me. This works great with leftover chicken.

Irene’s Gourmet Chicken Salad

6 servings

2 1/2 c. cooked chicken, chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
1 cup seedless grapes, halved
1/2 c slices almonds (toasted or untoasted) – optional
1 T dried or 3 T fresh chopped parsley
salt and pepper to taste
3/4 c light mayonnaise
1 T apple cider vinegar

  1. Mix together mayo, vinegar, parsley, salt and pepper. 

  2. Toss remaining ingredients together and serve chilled.

  3. This is wonderful in a pita with lettuce or sprouts!
