"This is actually a my copycat version of a recipe for Publix Club Chicken Salad. I picked it up one day to take to the beach; and, I absolutely loved it - so, I had to remake it. This is really good to use up that leftover Thanksgiving or Xmas turkey too. But, you can use chicken as well with this. A little bacon, sun dried tomato; and, it makes a great salad spread. Serve as a sandwich with some crisp lettuce, delicious to snack with crackers or on a crostini; stuffed in lettuce wraps, on cucumber slices, or in celery. Also, great to take to a potluck! Cooking time includes, time for the salad to chill and develop flavor."

Step 1

Salad ... Add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix until combined. And, make sure to adjust it to your tastes. More or less bacon, tomatoes, mayonnaise/yogurt; and even the seasoning. Like any salad ... you really need to make it your own - and, there is no right or wrong. Use what you have; and, if you it more creamy ... add more mayonnaise. More bacon or celery, simply add more.

Step 2

Cover with plastic wrap; and, refrigerate at least 1 hour to let the flavors develop.

Step 3

Serve and ENJOY! ... As a sandwich, with crackers or crostini, on cucumber slices, stuffed in tomatoes or celery; and, wrapped in lettuce leaves for a healthier version. The tomato and bacon really give this salad spread a "BLT" flavor.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



It is great to have a different kind of chicken salad. I went on the high end for the yogurt, and really enjoyed its presence. These are good flavors - and all went well with butter lettuce.

I had some frozen chicken in the freezer and used it to make this. It was great!!!! Looking forward to having it again tomorrow.
