BLT Chicken Salad

By Cherie Hammond Momma_CC


This is one of my favorite chicken salads. It is versatile because you can use the BBQ styled dressing it calls for or a dressing of your choice. I sometimes like to use either Ranch or Greek Feta dressing. (This recipe came from Quick Cooking recipe books)

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I am always ready to try a new salad and when BLT is in the title... well, hold me back! The BBQ sauce adds an unusual and pleasantly surprising twist that caps the salad off perfectly - ideal for a summer afternoon.

My tips...as I said in my above comment, I sometimes just serve it with Ranch or a Greek Feta Dressing. I like to use cherry tomatoes and just cut them in half. Use as many eggs as you like...and I also like to add cubed mozzarella cheese. You can also use cooked and cubed turkey instead of chicken!

    I have this recipe and I always make it when I have company over. It is very easy and tasty and I always receive compliments on it. I like it because it is something different rather than the typical chicken salad recipe that is sold in the supermarket deli.
