Classic Chicken Salad, Plus 4 Variations

Classic chicken salad is a summer lunch and picnic staple. Prepare a traditional batch, or jazz things up by serving any of the four flavorful variations.

Classic Chicken Salad

Combine cooked, diced chicken with mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, chopped celery and fresh dill.

Curried Chicken Salad

For a South Asian-inspired twist, use celery, chopped apples, and curry powder for a spicy kick.

Italian Chicken Salad

This Italian chicken salad is extra-chunky, thanks to the fresh diced tomatoes and mozzarella. Instead of mayo, a tangy vinaigrette holds it all together.

Southwestern Chicken Salad

This Southwestern spin on classic chicken salad features smoky chipotles, creamy avocado and Cotija cheese. Mix in some fresh corn, black beans and cilantro for a Latin edge.

Waldorf Chicken Salad

This extra-chunky chicken salad provides all the sweet, fresh flavors of a Waldorf salad but without the bed of lettuce underneath.
