Old-Fashioned Chicken Salad Recipe
This old-fashioned recipe harkens back to our great-grandmother's day when a well-seasoned mix of chopped chicken and celery were bound together with homemade mayonnaise and a generous splash of fresh lemon juice. Boiled eggs and pickled relish were optional. Large hens, simmered until tender, yielded both white and dark meat for maximum flavor.
