This is adapted from Ms. Child's salad. Good for a one-dish meal. You can also use turkey.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large mixing bowl, toss chicken or turkey with salt, pepper, and enough oil to coat the meat very lightly.
  2. Then toss with the lemon juice, and finally with the herbs, celery, onions, and optional walnuts.
  3. Add torn lettuce.
  4. Taste and correct seasoning.
  5. Let steep 10 minutes, tossing several times.
  6. Drain any accumulated liquid out of the salad, correct seasoning again; fold in just enough mayonnaise to" bind" the ingredients.

This is very good, I used frozen cooked turkey, although for 6 cups of turkey I had to increase the mayo, this has a nice blend of spices, I used black pepper in place of white, and also found that I had to adjust the tarragon, and I reduced the parsley quite a bit. thanks...Kitten:)

This is a wonderful recipe. I cooked a whole chicken in the crockpot first and then used both dark and white meat for this recipe. I left out the walnuts and used a red onion instead of scallions.

This is a tasty salad! I ground up the celery and walnuts in the food processor to make it palatable for my husband. The only thing I left out was the parsley, didn't have it on hand. Thanks for a lovely lunch!
