This is my own chicken salad recipe...but, I totally cheat. It's not completely homemade. I use canned chicken and think it is SO yummy! Also, I am not a fan of mayo, so I use other things! It's one of Matt's favorites. Here's what to do...

Easy Chicken Salad

1 can of white chicken breast
Dill pickle relish
Sweet pickle relish
Chopped celery
Finely chopped pecans
Sliced grapes
aprox. 1/4 cup Ranch dressing
aprox. 1 T. Spicy mustard

Drain chicken and shred. Place in bowl and add celery, relishes, grapes and pecans. Add dressing and mustard. (don't add too much, you don't want it to be runny!) Season with salt and pepper. Stir well. Serve on a sandwich, on crackers or with pretzel chips.

I'm not a fan of mayo either, but use it just to hold my chicken salad together. I've never thought of using Ranch-what a great idea! I use apples and green onions in mine too and sometimes raisins :)
