    This is the best chicken salad you’ve ever tasted! It’s different and delicious and the perfect meal for any time of the day — whether it's for lunch in a sandwich, on top of greens as a salad or as a dip with crackers or crudités, you can’t go wrong. Plus, it's a great way to use up leftover roast chicken. It’s a best seller at BIRD bakery and once you taste it, it’s easy to see why!

    Swap Option: If you're looking for a healthy alternative to mayo, try using Greek yogurt!
