If you are looking for a nice, light meal on a hot day, or something that is easy to take along on a picnic, you really can't go wrong with chicken salad. Not only is it easy to make and have a broad appeal, chicken salad is also exceptionally easy to modify and put your own unique twist onto. To make your own, all you need to do is follow this chicken salad recipe, and do a bit of experimenting along the way.
When you make this recipe, keep a few things in mind. The first is that this recipe has been designed to provide you with five decent sized servings. If you need more (or less) then you will need to adjust the recipe accordingly. In addition, it is also fairly easy to modify the recipe to your particular tastes. For example, if you would like it with a little bit of cheese, then simply add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup shredded cheese (your preference on the cheese). Some other popular additions are things like grapes and blanched or roasted almonds. Typically you will slice the grapes, and the almonds will be slivered before adding them (singly about 1-1/4 cups, or 3/4 cups if you are adding both).
