I had chicken breasts left over from a BBQ I had and decided to make a chicken salad. I couldn't find a recipe that I liked so I played around and came up with this. It is delicious!

I've been making this wonderful salad for a while, with minor changes--I love and use Gala apples, omit onions, and add 'Craisins'. NO MIRACLE WHIP. Eat from bowl, wrapped in tortilla, or on bread! Read More

I spent a lot of time and money buying and preparing the ingredients to this salad. I was so excited to try it. Maybe it's the combo of mayo vanilla yogurt and onions that give it a weird taste. I should've read the modifications in the other review.:( Read More

Delicious!! This tastes VERY similar to the chicken salad they make at Arby's, which is exactly what I was looking to duplicate - thanks! As other reviewers mentioned, I left out the Miracle Whip and I just doubled the mayo instead. Such a versatile recipe - leave out what you don't like or substitute with ingredients you do like. You can't go wrong with this one, it's a keeper! Read More

Just made this for my husbands lunch. Took the advice of another reviewer and used gala apples and added cranberries. replaced walnuts with pistacios. Put in 1/2 of small red onion and it's not overwhelming. This was delicious. I also used 10 Tbsp of olive oil mayo instead of using 5 miracle whip and 5 mayo. Will definitely make this again.

I made it without the Miracle Whip. The onion was a bit overwhelming for me and my hubby so next time I will either cut the amount half or omit it all together. Read More

So GOOD! I substituted almonds for the walnuts, craisins for the grapes (since I didn't have any) and left out the lemon juice. It's AMAZING!! This recipe will be in heavy rotation for sure! Read More

Excellent! I didn't have all the ingredients but it was awesome. I had regular yogurt so used more lemon juice used sweet onions red apples and no celery. OK I had to change it but the original recipe is a perfect standard to work from. The yogurt was a healthy delicious option. Will make it again and with all the recipe ingredients. Read More

Loved this! Was a great summer lunch. Had it over Hawian rolls. Reminds me of the chicken salad summer sandwich from Wendy's. Very good I have already shared this with family. Read More
