Transform a basic chicken salad recipe into many healthy variations. It's a great recipe to have in your collection.
This recipe is very easy. Dice the vegetables and mix everything in a medium bowl. Serve immediately or chill.
First, how are you going to cook your chicken? There are many successful options.
The onion. If you like raw onion flavor, simply dice it and add to your recipe. If you like the crunch of onion but a much milder flavor, here's a super trick: soak the onion in a bowl of cold water. Either slice and/or dice it, soak, then drain. You'll love how crunchy and "not-oniony" it tastes.
Celery. I like to use a chopper which cuts the celery into nicely small but irregular shapes. This somehow disguises the celery enough (who really likes the taste of celery that much?), and it still adds nice crunch to your chicken salad. Hey, it works for me.
Mayonnaise. Don't be scared of it. You won't gain 5 pounds just because you ate chicken salad made of mayonnaise - remember, you're eating balanced meals and exercising. Put just enough in to hold the chicken salad together well. I prefer Miracle Whip because I think it gives a better flavor; real mayonnaise will be more mild.
You can add many different flavor and vegetable combinations to make your chicken salad different. This is the one I usually do:
We ate chicken salad like this in the Carribean on our honeymoon.
