Gramma Sue's Chicken Salad

Here is my Chicken Salad Recipe.  This is a meal they way I plate it.  I will post a picture the next time I make this which will be very soon.  Let me know how you like it.

Gramma Sue’s Chicken Salad

3 cups cooked chicken chopped fine or shredded (vegetarians use two small cans of Fry Chick)

2 stalks celery small diced

2 Tlbs red onion small diced

2 stalks green onion small diced

1 red bell pepper small diced

¼ c finely chopped fresh basil

1 c. cooked orzo

Place all of the above ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Pour dressing over ingredients and mix well.


1 c. mayonnaise (vegetarians can use vegan mayonnaise)

1 fresh lemon squeezed, about 1-1/2 to 2 Tlbs

1 1/2 to 2 tsp. cumin (I like the taste but 2 tsp may be too strong for some)

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp garlic powder

Salt and pepper to taste

Wisk ingredients together in small bowl until smooth and pour over Chicken Salad mixture.


For each plate serving place

1 cup iceberg lettuce shredded or cut into bit sized pieces

1 cup baby spinach cut into bite sized pieces

(Mix together)

½ avocado pitted and skinned. (sprinkle with lemon juice to keep from turning brown)

Place avocado half on top of bed of lettuce. Scoop Chicken Salad over top of avocado half…about a cup.

Place favorite bread cut in half or at an angle on each side of the plate. I used flat bread. You can use any bread you like.
