You start with a basic chicken salad base (CSB). Cooked chicken, MAYO, lemon zest, lemon juice. Why is MAYO in all caps? Because I’m obsessed with mayo.

After that, you have your choice of mix-ins. Then season to taste with S&P!

Option #1: Zesty Lemon Pepper Situation. Add (you guessed it) lemon pepper seasoning AND a bit of chopped red onion. Perfection.

Option #2: The Celery Package. Add chopped celery and celery seed. It’s classic but oh-so tasty. You can’t go wrong!

Option #3: Cranberry Nut Love. Add dried cranberries and chopped walnuts (roasted at your option). It’s fun for fall and packed with flavors. My new favorite!
