Frisky Eats: 8 Chicken Salad Recipes That Don’t Taste Like Mayo

I get the feeling most people under-appreciate chicken salad.  As a kid, my grandmother used to make tuna and chicken salad as dips for every party. With just a few ingredients, a flavorful dish can be made in advance and enjoyed all week long.  Although I grew up on chicken salad, at some point, I started to shy away from all things mayo. I appreciate how the flavor and texture of mayonnaise can enhance a dish, but can’t stand when the flavor is overpowering. For years, I have preferred most salads (pasta, potato, etc.) with a light dressing instead of mayo. The neighborhood deli makes a chicken salad with dried cranberries and celery that my husband loves.  Then my world changed when I spotted Good Foods cranberry almond chicken salad in individual serving cups at Costco! These little cups use Greek yogurt and poppy seed dressing. Can you tell I am already hooked? They have me rethinking my chicken salad boycott and searching for more little-to-no-mayo chicken salad recipes.
