Fresh-tasting and great for a get-together, this popular chicken salad could also be served on lettuce or a slice of cantaloupe or honeydew melon. When there will be kids in the crowd, I often substitute halved red seedless grapes for the peppers. —Patricia D. Tjugum, Tomahawk, Wisconsin
Janice Conway adds olives, cucumber and radishes to leftover chicken to create her Mediterranean-inspired salad tucked into handheld pitas. "This recipe is great for summer because there's no cooking involved," she writes from Reynolds, Illinois.
This chicken salad sandwich recipe is perfect to serve when you want to “show off” a little. It features an interesting blend of chicken, nuts, cranberries, curry and other ingredients. I mix it up the night before so the flavors meld. —Carole Martin, Coffeeville, Mississippi
