  1. Used fresh squeezed lemon juice. used seared chk breast in olive oil brwd on each side then cooked 5 min per side with covered lid. seasonings salt pep terderizer. god for one day only....letuce gets soggy!
  2. This is pretty good and I have to say that putting shredded lettuce into the chicken salad mix is something new to me!I used 3 very large chicken breasts and diced half of a green pepper in place of the onion since my family does not care for onions. I will make again only I - Read more ...
  3. Really fresh tasting for a spring lunch. I did make a few changes though. It sounded like a lot of onion and my young son doesn't like it raw so I omitted it. I used regular frozen green peas instead of snow peas. I also left out the lettuce and just served it with lettuce - Read more ...
  4. Very good... halved the recipe based on how much leftover grilled chicken breast i had on hand; substituted Vidalia onion for the red onion mayo for the Miracle Whip fresh parsley instead of dried tarragon rather than basil (realised at the last minute i had no basil on hand!) & 1 single serving bag of - Read more ...
  5. I halfed the amount of Miracle Whip and I thought the onions were overwhelming so I really didn't like it but the next day it tasted much better after sitting in the fridge for a day the strong onion taste was gone and the snow peas and almonds give it a crunchy fresh texture.
  6. This was very good and easy too. I used canned chicken but have also used a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken from the supermarket too. Both work.

  7. We really liked this. I did use half the salad dressing and used lite sour cream so I am hoping it didn't have 33g of fat. It was great on a really hot summer day. I served it on garden greens with a little oil and vinegar dressing.
  8. Very nice recipe - I made it as directed and would also reduce the Miracle Whip by 1/2 but otherwise really great!
  9. Delightful salad with a nice lemon flavor that is not too overpowering. I made the recipe as written but the next time I make it I would use only 1/2 cup salad dressing. I also used thinly sliced water chestnuts because I didn't have almonds. Otherwise I thought it was a very nice summery recipe. - Read more ...
