Chicken Salad


It is great for potlucks, to take to work or school or when you have company or family to feed for lunch.  

This is only 3 ingredients.  If you don’t like onion, substitute chopped pickle or relish.  

It does taste better when made a few hours or the day ahead to blend the flavors but that is not necessary.  

I am giving you a basic recipe.  

Chopped hard cooked eggs are also a good addition and will add protein and make them more filling.  If you add egg, you will also want more mayonnaise to keep it creamy.  

This is our favorite easy chicken salad.  If you would like a fancier chicken salad, try Deluxe Keto Chicken Salad. It is full of flavor. Also check out 15 Low Carb Keto Chicken Salad Recipes for lots of other chicken salad recipes.
