In our house, this light and tasty salad is a real summer favorite! I usually serve it with sliced tomatoes and bread and butter. It can also be used to make wonderful chicken salad sandwiches - perfect in hot weather.


  • 6 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon
  • 1 cup pecan halves, toasted
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Tomato wedges


  1. In a bowl, combine chicken and celery. In another bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice and salt. Pour dressing over chicken; toss well to coat. Refrigerate. Just before serving, toss with bacon and pecans. Serve on lettuce with tomato garnish.
