My neighbor made this for a picnic forever ago, and it is super easy to make. Easy to change it your own liking. Sometimes the onions can be too strong, so you may want to test before adding too many.

While this is great as is to change the flavor and color up a little add a few drops of liquid smoke to the dressing and use blueberries instead of grapes. Read More

It seemed a litle blah to me. Wondering if it could be because I used salad dressing instead of mayonaise. I tried adding salt to the finihed product but still feel like it needed a little zing. Read More

Definitely will make it again. Needed something quick and cool. Had leftover Brown rice in the fridge. Used drained canned chicken and after reading the reviews added Worcestershire to the mayonnaise. Quick easy and delicious. Will make it again for sure. Four stars because I changed the recipe but really a five star. Read More

I wanted to try a different type of chicken salad and this definitley fit the bill! Next time I will cut down on the red onion thats for sure. I love onion but for this dish (and my tastes) I will halve it. Other than that it was pretty tasty and will make again. I did feel like it was missing something....just can't put my finger on it. Hopefully someone figures it out and writes a review thats where i get most of my inspiration from!! Read More
