Chicken Salad with Pickles makes a delicious meal throughout the year.
It is no secret how much my family loves chicken salad. It is definitely one of go-to recipes on a regular basis. My husband loves it so much, that I like to make it ahead and keep it in large deli containers in the refrigerator for an even quicker lunch or supper for him. It’s delicious on top of salad greens for a larger salad, in a tortilla as a wrap, with crackers, or just right by itself!
While we absolutely adore chicken salad with grapes and other sweeter chicken salad recipes, sometimes I just crave it with pickles. There is just something about the dill flavor and the crunch from the pickles that I love!
This recipe is also great for serving when entertaining. Simple and delicious, it always seems to go quickly. I like to make both a sweet and this tangy chicken salad to serve for meals. It gives everyone a choice to select the chicken salad that feeds their craving the best! It’s fun to create a chicken salad buffet even with a few varieties of chicken salad and then have all of the elements that anyone could want to enjoy it – like the salad green, sandwich breads, tortilla wraps, and crackers. It’s fun to see how everyone prepares their own!
Here’s my Chicken Salad with Pickles recipe. I hope you enjoy it!
