Giacomo’s Chicken Salad

Presented by Giacomo’s Italian Market & Grill

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 lb. cooked chicken breast, shredded
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1 T ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups extra heavy mayonnaise*
  • Salt to taste

*Made specifically for the foodservice industry by Hellman’s, Kraft, Blue Plate, and other brands, this super-rich version may also be purchased by home consumers who really love their mayo: It’s usually packaged in 1-gallon containers.

DIRECTIONS

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and serve as desired. The restaurant presents this salad with grilled crostini. 

NOTE: This simple classic can be adapted in countless ways: For a refreshing summer version, stir in sliced red grapes, scallions, and fresh dill. In autumn, add chopped apple, dried cranberries, and toasted pecans. For a more exotic variation, stir in chopped mango, thinly sliced red Thai peppers (or chopped red bell pepper for a milder taste), lime juice, and curry powder. Or use your imagination—almost anything goes.

Serves about 10
