15 Unique and Delicious Chicken Salad Recipes
Whether you prefer a traditional mayonnaise base or a pesto remix, these chicken salad recipes are sure to satisfy.
Flank Steak and Arugula Salad
For a tasty salad dressing without oil, we mixed salsa with some vinegar. You can use any prepared salsa: hot or mild, red or green, plain or fruity.
Grilled Steak and Summer Vegetable Salad
Try grilled bruschetta with this supper: Brush thick slices of crusty bread with olive oil, then grill until toasted on both sides. Flank steak can be used in place of hanger.
Grilled Skirt-Steak Salad
Some dishes are so adjustable, they're more a concept than a recipe. Exhibit A: this grilled-steak salad. The trick is to drizzle on a little vinaigrette when the meat comes off the heat, to give it a savory brightness. Lay the sliced steak and grilled vegetables on top of crunchy romaine and anything else that beckons at the farm stand, then top it all off with briny feta and more vinaigrette.
Sauteed Romaine Lettuce

This feta- and cilantro-specked salad is particularly good with poached chicken, grilled steak, or burgers.
New Greek Salad
Golden croutons made from olive bread boost the presence of the Kalamata olives, both of which are fried in this rendition of the salad. Cucumbers, tomatoes, and red onion—tumbled over slices of feta—are all here. Dill adds a bright spring grassiness to this new rendition of Greek salad.
