Creamy chicken salad with lemon

    30 min

    I love this salad in my packed lunches and with crusty bread. It's a rich chicken salad, with chicken, mange-tout, red onions and crunchy almonds, in a creamy, lemon dressing.

    Delightful salad with a nice lemon flavor that is not too overpowering. I made the recipe as written, but the next time I make it I would use only 1/2 cup salad dressing. I also used thinly sliced water chestnuts because I didn't have almonds. Otherwise, I thought it was a very nice, summery recipe. I used a rotisserie chicken, and frozen snow peas, served it on a fresh tomato for my husband and he loved it. I ate mine on toasted 9 grain bread. Great flavor.  -  01 Aug 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We really liked this. I did use half the salad dressing and used lite sour cream, so I am hoping it didn't have 33g of fat. It was great on a really hot summer day. I served it on garden greens with a little oil and vinegar dressing.  -  24 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very nice recipe - I made it as directed and would also reduce the Miracle Whip by 1/2, but otherwise really great!  -  17 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
