This basic recipe is enhanced by fresh herbs and can be served a variety of ways. Cooked meat and mayonnaise “salads” can be traced to America’s founding and “meat salads” were popular main dish recipes in the 1800s. Leftovers combined with mayonnaise were also served on top of lettuce for lunch. Chicken salad recipes can be found in 19th century Southern cookbooks. Chicken salad is now a classic American recipe and variants include the sweet addition of apples or grapes.
