I happened on this when I had some chicken salad left, but not enough to serve 3 people since my son's return home to finish his degree at a local university.
I had some fresh cauliflower in the refrigerator and a couple of boiled eggs. I chopped up the eggs and then finely chopped the cauliflower, adding a bit of ranch dressing - and voila! No one was the wiser and it tasted great! Besides the taste, it also made the chicken salad more nutritious.

I love crisp cold crunchy chicken salad. I like it on a lettuce leaf, in a pita pocket with lettuce & tomato, or topped on a plate of salad. It is a wonderful cold summertime meal, though I do make it once in a while other times of year.
Bring water to a boil in a pot, add chicken, reduce heat to low and poach until no longer pink in the center, about 15 to 20 minutes, remove from water, let cool and then dice.
Mix the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, paprika, and chili powder in a large bowl, gently stir in the eggs, celery, onion, and diced chicken.
Season with hot sauce and salt to taste, cover and chill for at least one hour to allow flavors meld.

I love homemade chicken salad. I finally have tweaked it to the point where it is the best I have eaten.
Love this on lettuce or in a sandwich.
Put gelatin in cold water. Dissolve over hot water. Add chicken broth and mix all of ingredients together and chill. Serves 12-15.
Try this nutritious, hearty salad!
Hello all! I'm having a great time at this site! It's awesome to be able to share some of my vegetarian ideas. My youngest daughter and I don't eat meat, but still like the taste and idea of chicken bits in a salad.

This is what I like to think of as a classic chicken salad recipe. Very, very tasty! Great for these hot weather days!
A protein rich summer meal idea.
This is a favorite of mine. Nice because it is good as a salad or in a sandwich. I prefer mine not in the sandwich but just plain.
In a medium bowl, mix together mayonnaise with paprika and seasoned salt. Blend in dried cranberries, celery, bell pepper, onion, and nuts. Add chopped chicken, and mix well.
For salsa, in a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients; chill until serving. In a large skillet, saute the chicken, garlic, cumin, onion powder, chili powder, cayenne pepper and salt in oil until heated through.
Texture should be creamy but thick enough to scoop with Wheat Thins. You may need to add a little more mustard or mayo depending on the texture.
Mix and serve this tasty salad your way.
Place the washed chicken breasts in a flat baking pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover tightly with foil and bake at 250 degrees F for 1 hour or until tender. Cool and remove bone and skin.
In a large bowl, combine the chicken, celery, green pepper, pickle relish, carrot and pimientos. In another bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice, sugar, salt and pepper; spoon over chicken mixture and toss to coat.

I am looking for the recipe to Arby's Chicken Salad or Bi-Lo Grocery Store's Chicken Salad.
Sarah from Chattanooga, TN
I don't have that one but I have another great one that is similar.
Fruited Chicken Salad
2 c. cooked chicken, diced
1/2 c. celery, diced fine
1/2 Miracle Whip
1/4 c. chopped pecans
1/2 c. canned pineapple tidbits
Mix all together. If you like your salad a bit "wetter" then add more miracle whip.
As to the amount of each ingredient, use your own judgement. But here is the list of ingredients for Arby's chicken salad sandwich (my favorite fast food sandwich!)
Diced grilled chicken, apples, red grapes, celery, toasted pecans and mayo. Served on honey wheat bread with green leaf lettuce.

Years ago I used to make a chicken salad using cashews and I think a dry package of ranch dressing and it was stuffed in a tomato shell. It made a beautiful presentation especially if served on a black plate with green lettuce. Does anyone have this recipe or something similar?
By Kathy from Sylvania, OH
I haven't seen that, but what about chicken salad with cashews or pecans and chopped seedless grapes? This could be put into large pasta shells or served with crackers or in a flaky croissant.
A few years a go at my daughters baby shower, we served a chicken salad on mini croissants that was wonderful. My youngest daughter will be getting married soon and she is wanting to have the same food served at the reception. The problem is that I can not find the recipe anywhere.
All I can remember about it is we used boneless chicken breasts chopped, mandarin oranges, almond slivers and shallots. I do not remember if there are any additional ingredients or what the quantities are. I do know that it was a wonderful recipe and if anyone is lucky enough to have it I would appreciate your sharing!! I will continue to look for it as well and if I happen to find it I will post it.
I am not sure if this is the recipe that you are looking for but it is really good and can be made with or without pasta.
Mandarin chicken Salad
1 teaspoon finely chopped, peeled fresh ginger root
1 garlic clove, pressed
1/3 cup rice vinegar or white wine vinegar
&frac; cup orange juice
&frac; cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 envelope Lipton Recipe Secrets Onion Soup Mix
2 teaspoons sugar
For Dressing, finely chop gingerroot, press garlic. Mix all ingredients above, cover, refrigerate until ready to eat.
8 ounces uncooked bow tie pasta
&frac; cucumber, scored, seeded and sliced
&frac; cup diced red bell pepper
&frac; cup chopped red onion
1 package (6 ounces) fresh baby spinach leaves
1 can (11 ounces) mandarin orange segments, drained
2 cups diced cooked chicken (I buy precooked, marinated and cut up ready to use)
&frac; cup sliced almonds, toasted
i was looking to see if I might fill in the "&frac;" for the last recipe. Anytime a symbol is used for a fraction, our system doesn't translate it so it looks like that. They should be 1/4, 1/2 or other fractions.
I couldn't find the recipe that Ellen posted but did find a few more:
Here are a couple of really different recipes for Mandarin Chicken Salad:
and some other Chicken Salad recipes:
Hopefully Ellen comes back and notices that the ingredients have the funny "&frac;" so we an find out the actual fractions for the ingredients.

Yummy for tortilla wrap sammies.
Mix all ingredients and serve as desired.

This sounds absolutely delicious Deeli. It's a keeper for sure, and earns you another "thumbs up".
Thank you for sharing with us.
Mix everything together except shoestring potatoes. Add them just before serving. Serve on crisp lettuce leaf.
By Robin from Washington, IA
The ingredients I usually use in my chicken salad, eggs, pickles, etc., just were not pleasing my taste buds. I opened a can of chicken and began to add apple and one thing led to another, and now I am addicted to my new chicken salad recipe! Hope you enjoy as much as I do!
Drain the chicken and place in a large mixing bowl. Chop the apple into pieces the size of half a grape. Add mayonnaise, mustard, pepper, and sugar.
Mix well and refrigerate. Best if it sits at least one hour.
Serve on top of spring mix, then top with dried cranberries and walnuts or of course you can eat it without the greens!
Don't forget to top with the cranberries and walnuts!

We had a salad/dessert potluck at church last Sunday and I took a bite of this very dish! It was fabulous. I happened to be at the table of the lady who made it. She told me that she used canned chicken breast and added a bit of salt and pepper.
Added dried fruit...which I saw cranberries. In it was walnuts, a bit of mayo and then she covered it with honey. It was the best tasting salad ever!
Marinate chicken in oil, orange juice, vinegar, and salt. Cool cooked rice. Mix all ingredients together and chill.
By Robin from Washington, Ia
As requested by several members.
Boil 3 boneless chicken breast in 2 cans of chicken broth, don't add any water.
Cook until done. Remove from broth (save broth for soup, etc.). Shred or chop chicken
Add chicken and mix together. Refrigerate for several hours to let flavors blend
This is my one and only, and favorite sister's basic recipe. :) You can add or subtract whatever ingredients you want. This is the way I like it.
I don't like chicken (I only eat it fried, bad for me I know) or turkey for that matter. I (really) don't like boiled chicken but I will eat this. It's the best I've tasted in my 64 years. She makes it for us about once a week. It's simple and basic, I do hope you enjoy it.

Cook chicken in water, orange juice and nutmeg in a large pan. Simmer until chicken is very tender. Cool and refrigerate. Later remove bones. Cut meat into bite-size pieces. Add mayonnaise, celery and onions. Serve on lettuce leaf and sprinkle with paprika.
Mix all ingredients well and chill at least 1 hour before serving. Great on croissants! A party favorite!
Combine all but chips or noodles. Chill 2 hours. Add chips before serving on lettuce leaf.
