Chicken Salad Fit for a Dragon

Rated as 4.55 out of 5 Stars

"Over the years I've finally developed this salad that is perfect for the Dragon. Very versatile, add your own favorite touches. A meal for company lunch or to take to work. There is no salt added other than what is in the mayo. Complete meal, serve on some lettuce leaves with extras of your choice...tomato, hearts of palm, cucumbers, olives, carrot sticks, cottage cheese, artichoke hearts, etc."

  1. Stir the chicken, mayonnaise, celery, pine nuts, lemon juice, relish, jalapeno pepper, and black pepper together in a mixing bowl until evenly blended. Cover, and refrigerate 20 to 30 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.


  • Cook's Note
  • Here's a jalapeno tip. I fine chop and freeze in a sealed sandwich bag. Lay the bag flat so that it is not a solid lump. I can grab a couple of tablespoons to throw into a dish anytime I need without extra prepping!
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I liked this a lot--it's a spicy take on a chicken salad, and I liked the addition of the pine nuts. Didn't have celery, so I used yellow bell pepper for crunch. Even though I liked this, afte...

This is tasty, not as spicy as I expected it to be. The pepper adds a nice kick, but isnt overpowering. Pine nuts are about $10 for a very small container in my area. I used sliced almonds since...

Such a refreshing taste. I ate it 4 days in a row as a mid-day snack. Easy to make and great tasting. I will make this often. One thing is that I did not eat it with bread or roll. I ate it in a...

Great recipe for leftover chicken. Add a little of this and a touch of that to make it match your taste buds.

This is a fantastic recipe! The heat is just enough and the Pine Nuts add another ‘crunch’. I modified a few things from availability of items in my kitchen.
