Lots of fresh ingredients in this recipe make it stand out from the crowd. Not only do they add natural sweetness and delicious flavor, but a lovely crunch as well.

I love that it can be prepared in advance which makes it ideal for entertaining. In fact, it’s one of my favorite recipes for tea sandwiches. To prepare this chicken salad for tea sandwiches, do a nice fine dice on the chicken, apples, grapes and celery.

Chicken Salad Ingredients

This traditional chicken salad recipe features lots of fresh ingredients that make this the best chicken salad you’ve ever tried. This is what you’ll need:

  • cooked chicken – any cooked chicken will work in this recipe but you want chicken that isn’t seasoned or overly seasoned. Rotisserie chicken will work, grilled chicken will work, poached chicken and baked chicken will also work
  • seedless red grapes – chicken salad with grapes is SO good! If you’ve never had chicken salad this way before, you’re in for a treat. Green grapes can also be used in a pinch but they are more tart than sweet and you will notice the difference in you salad
  • red apple – Fuji, Gala, Honeycrisp – any sweet, firm apple will work here
  • celery – the celery in this recipe adds a delicious crunch factor as well as fresh flavor
  • nuts – I always choose pecans because they’re my favorite but walnuts or almonds will also work in this recipe
  • mayonnaise – for delicious creaminess of course! Miracle Whip can be substituted as well as Greek yogurt. I do recommend going half and half if you use Greek yogurt because of it’s tartness.
  • lemon – just the juice is needed.
  • fresh parsley – fresh herbs are always a great idea in salad recipes like this one. I used flat leaf parsley here but curly leaf would also work.
  • kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

  5. Serve as sandwiches on bread or croissants or as chicken salad lettuce cups.

  • Can you freeze chicken salad? It’s not a great idea to freeze this salad. The ingredients will get all mushy and lose flavor.

  • How long is chicken salad good for? Once the dressing is mixed in with the other ingredients, this salad is good for up to 3 days stored in an airtight container in the fridge.

Variations To Try

  1. I like to use mayonnaise in this recipe but you can absolutely use Miracle Whip instead. Another option is Greek yogurt. If using Greek yogurt, I recommend using half yogurt and half mayonnaise.
  2. Not a fan of grapes or can’t find them? Try using raisins, like I do in my Rotisserie Chicken Salad Sandwich, or even craisins!
  3. Try using celery seeds instead of fresh celery.
  4. Different kinds of apples will give this easy salad recipe a yummy makeover.
