I make lots of Chicken salads in the summer, usually loaded up with something fun or special…but every now and then I get a craving for a good old fashioned chicken salad. A few years back I was introduced to Costco’s Chicken Salad by my sister in law. My gosh, did it ever hit the spot and it’s crazy good. But I couldn’t help but think it would be so easy to make a Copycat Costco Chicken Salad at home.
Can a girl have too many chicken salad recipes? According to my recipe box, probably not! Especially when one of them transitions out of the dog days of summer into crisp, cool fall as well as this one does. After all, nothing says fall to us Northerners quite like wild rice!
Chicken & Fruit Salad with Raspberry Dressing is one of my faves. The whole combo of fruit with salad greens smacks of the 90s and I think I’ve been making this version since around then, originally culled from Cooking Light. On a hot day, there’s nothing better and there’s a little something to please almost anyone!
This is a fun little Chicken Salad recipe with a few Greek twists! Full of lean chicken, a lightened dressing and crunchy vegetables, this is a great recipe for early spring through summer. I like to serve these in a Pita, just for fun.
One of my favorite chicken salads (and I have several, just follow the tag chicken salad at the bottom of the page) is this one with dried cherries & pecans. Served over a salad in the winter, it’s festive; the dark cherries pop against the green, and it’s always fantastic in a sandwich.
