Frugal Recipe: Chicken Salad

As with some previous recipes I have posted here this recipe for chicken salad can have a lot of variables which, in my opinion, is a very good thing. I will list the basic ingredients we always use first, and then the extra ones we occasionally add.


Two cups of chopped cooked chicken

Two stalks of celery, diced

1 small onion, diced

1 cup of mayo (or more to taste)

Squirt of lemon juice

Squeeze of mustard

Spice to taste. We have used, in various combinations, salt and black pepper, basil, parsley, garlic and tarragon.

Extra ingredients can include black or green olives, sliced cucumber and diced tomatoes. We don’t add the cucumbers or tomatoes until ready to serve because it can tend to make the mixture soupy if it sits for a while.


Mix all of the ingredients together and serve on your favorite kind of bread as a sandwich or with lettuce as a salad. Mmmmm!
