For a light meal, a plate of chicken salad sandwiches and big bowl of Copy Cat Olive Garden Salad is a good combo. For a heavier meal, pair the sandwiches with a soup like Roasted Tomato Soup or Old Fashioned Broccoli Cheese Soup.

HOW LONG DOES CHICKEN SALAD LAST?

  • Store any leftovers, tightly covered, in the refrigerator for up to 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator. Stir the chicken salad before using as some of the ingredients may start to separate.
  • Chicken salad can be left out at room temperature for up to 2 hours. After that, the chicken salad should be discarded.

TOOLS TO MAKE THIS RECIPE
