Old Fashioned Chicken Salad

Photo

 

Mother made old fashioned chicken salad with ingredients she had in her fridge.  This doesn't have fruit or sour cream or nuts, like a lot of chicken salads today, it's just a basic old fashioned chicken salad and it's so good.

 She always ground her chicken salad with a food grinder, I prefer just chunking it.

There isn't an exact recipe, you just adjust ingredients as you go along.

Cooked chicken breast
Hard Boiled Eggs
Chopped Green Onions
Diced Celery
Celery Seed
Pimentos (Mother didn't add pimentos, but my friend Jean does, and it's a nice touch)
Sweet pickle relish
Mayonnaise
Pepper 

Just blend ingredients, adding enough Mayo to make it creamy, chill and enjoy.  It's wonderful, great made with turkey, too...
