"the Other White Meat" Chicken Salad Sandwich

"I tried a pork chop recipe for dinner that my family didn't enjoy. I had a lot of chops leftover that I didn't want to waste so I put them in the fridge til the next day, hoping to figure out what to do with them. My family loves chicken salad sandwiches & the idea came to me that I should try to disquise the pork chops by making them into "chicken" salad. This is the delicious result, minus the original pork chop preparation. I used what I had on hand at the time, but most of the ingredients are easily substituted & now I will just use any leftover pork chops for this. It tastes just like my chicken salad."

Ready In:




  • Combine all ingredients in large bowl, stir til combined.
  • Serve immediately or refrigerate for an hour or two to let flavors mingle.
  • We especially like it on cracked wheat bread but sourdough or croissants would be delicious as well.

    I saved 2 thick slices from the two ends of a pork roast just for this recipe & followed the recipe on down, although I did substitute lemon pepper for the S&P, & we had a wonderful salad for sandwiches! Great change of pace from our often-served chicken salad! And, since I usually have chopped &/or shredded pork in the freezer, just waiting for something like this, I'll be making it again! Thanks for posting a great recipe! [Made & reviewed in Bargain Basement recipe tag]

    Oh, I can't wait to try this one! I remember having pork salad at a luncheon years ago...just with diced apples, celery, and a mayonnaise based dressing. This one reads like a great tasting dish! I'll review when I make it. Thanks for sharing!


Hi! I am happily married with two children, 26 and 12. For nearly 10 years when this site was Recipezaar and then Food.com I hosted several different forums. I enjoyed making, creating, reviewing, and photographing recipes, but what I miss the most are the friendships I made here. I was Food Editor for the Mill Creek View Newspaper in Mill Creek, WA. for about 4 years during that time. Currently I am the office manager at a small mental health clinic. I'm not on this site much anymore, but I do continue to appreciate and respond to all reviews posted to my recipes.
