To make a quick, easy and delicious chicken salad, combine one 16-ounce package coleslaw blend with 2 tablespoons sliced green onions, one 9-ounce package of frozen chicken strips that have been cooked, and 1/3 cup citrus-flavored vinaigrette dressing. Add the noodles from a ramen noodle mix on top for crunch.
To create another chicken salad that is packed with flavor, remove the skin from 2 cups of rotisserie chicken, and mix with 1/2 cup diced celery, 1/3 cup diced carrots and 1/3 cup diced red onions. Next, create the dressing by combining 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons yellow mustard, 1 teaspoon celery salt, 1 teaspoon granulated garlic and a pinch of paprika. Mix all ingredients until well combined, and add black pepper to taste.
When it comes to chicken salad, the possibilities are endless. Add sliced grapes, dried cranberries or crushed pineapple for sweetness, or toss in sliced nuts, diced carrots or green peppers for extra crunch. Add dry ranch dressing mix, curry powder or a dash of soy sauce for a punch of flavor.
One of the best things about creamy chicken salad is its versatility. Put the chicken salad on a fresh roll or toast to create a sandwich, or serve it on a bed of lettuce to make a healthy lunch.
