    Good combo in both the dressing and the salad ingredients. Tasty!-and makes a good meal thats perfect for this time of year.  -  22 Jan 2009


    Delicious! I love chicken salads and anything with bacon is bound to be good so I had to give this a try. I used leftover rotisserie chicken and 1/2 cup of Hellman's light mayo with 1/4 cup of light sour cream for the dressing. I de-seeded my tomato so nothing would get "watery". I loved the crunch from the celery and instead of just placing this on a plate as a "salad", I decided to roll this up inside large tortillas with the romaine lettuce and avocado slices because afterall, some chicken salads deserve to be eaten with your hands rather than just a fork!  -  12 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a decent chicken salad...very simple to make and you probably have everything you need. I only used half a cup of mayo and added a good deal of Lemon Pepper seasoning and garlic needs some spicing up. I've made it twice now and it's much better with diced chicken breast than with canned's a better texture. I also added the avocado to the mixture rather than as a garnish. You really can add anything to this and it will turn out pretty good.  -  15 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
