i love chicken salad. i can eat it every day. in fact, when we boil crawfish, we usually throw a whole chicken in the crawfish water and boil it so that we can make chicken salad with the spicy meat. it's awesome.

I have had some from Oak Point as well. It's good, but not as good as Calvin's.

Calvin's is the stuff, no doubt.

I really appreciate that it's mild enough to work as a base if you want to dress it up some. Sometimes I mix in some chopped walnuts and dried cranberries. Good stuff.

I don't love chicken and I don't love chicken salad, but Calvin's is like crack to me. Had a container last week that I savored and rationed for the week.

Me too. I can go months without eating it, then I have it once, and I start craving it all over again. I don't even like buying it because I know I have a problem . I find myself eating it when I'm not hungry at all.

I still can't replicate it, and I still not sure what it is that makes me enjoy it so much. I guess it's just the simplicity of it.

Calvin must put his special sauce in it every morning before he opens.

This is what I think in addition to putting it in a food processor.

Martini thinks Calvin uses a Swanson's chicken salad seasoning mix, but I contacted the company and it's no longer made.

I can make something close and get the texture close, but it's not the same and I'd rather just buy Calvin's than going through the trouble.

Like you, once I have it, I want more. I especially like having it around during tomato season. Its perfect to stuff in a tomato or an avocado for a quick summer meal. I boil some eggs and slice one to with it.

It's basically a dried ranch seasoning mix they put in. Almost exactly like the HEB brand mix. Food processor to get the texture.



Rouse's is much better IMO
