When it comes to a fast & delish lunch or dinner option, it doesn’t get better (or easier) than chicken salad!  It’s definitely one of my go-to dishes when I want a delicious meal without a lot of effort.  I use a store-bought rotisserie chicken to make this dish as simple as possible to put together.  Just mix in your favorite ingredients and you’re in business.  The possibilities for this salad are endless.  Some perfect add-ins are grapes, green onions, celery, nuts of all kind, and dried fruits such as cranberries, currants & apricots.  I also love adding fresh herbs into my chicken salad, like dill, parsley or tarragon.  I’ve got my favorites (almonds, apple, and raisins) in this chicken salad, so feel free to mix and match your faves!

  1. If I use regular Kraft mayonnaise and either regular vinegar or apple cider vinegar instead (since those are what I already have on hand), will it still turn out ok, do you think?
