Chicken Salad with Blue Cheese and Grapes
Grace Parisi considered many classic salads, like Waldorf and Cobb, before deciding on her version of chicken salad, which mixes store-bought roasted chicken with blue cheese, grapes, celery and sunflower seeds. She likes eating it wrapped in Bibb lettuce leaves. Slideshow: More Salads with Meat
Chicken Salad Sandwiches
Chicken salad sandwiches are traditionally made by mixing cooked chicken with mayonnaise and fresh herbs, occasionally adding sliced grapes for sweetness. One of our favorite variations of this lunchtime classic is a spicy Sriracha version—cooked chicken and edamame get mixed with the hot sauce, mayo and chile powder, and then stacked in a sandwich with arugula, alfalfa sprouts, sliced tomato and pickles. For something a bit cooler, try adding tangy feta and fresh mint to your usual chicken salad recipe to create a flavorful and sophisticated lunch. Here, these recipes and more.
