Chicken salad in NOLA?


Since there is a Baton Rouge thread, I figured I'd do a NOLA one.

re: Chicken salad in NOLA?


just make yor own.

Chicken - buy a roasted hen, boil some tenders in chicken broth with a little celery or buy a can or two of canned breast meat.

cut chicken to your preferred size - I prefer kind'a chunky chunks
chop some sweet pickles - I like more pickles than less, but this is America, so add the amount you like.
chop a stalk or two of celery kind'a fine chop.
chop a little onion if that's your thing (i don't)
put in bowl and add mayo Hellman's

Grind a little fresh black pepper over top before mixing

Add half grapes if you like. Add chopped walnuts or pecans or almonds if you like.

Wife adds craisins (good) and maybe white raisins (OK, too)

We have had it with sunflower seeds and I like that also.

Biggest requirement is Oat Berry Bread on eother side of a big spoonfull smeared to about 1/2 inch thickness and a perfectly chilled cold beer.

Why would you want to go out to buy it, now that you know the truth?

I can start and finish before I can get to the grocery store and back and know how long it has been sitting there before I eat it.

Langenstein's has a pretty good Calvin's like salad, I believe. Same with their tuna. It's good during Lent with Fritos.

I miss my chicken salad from Bruno's in Birmingham.

I dont want to go through that much effort for 1 or 2 sandwiches.

Yeh, but

No Bruno's now

I second the tears

My favorite was Vincent's - long gone now

I think they are making a Target out of the building.

Is there a Fresh Market in NO?

Their's is pretty good, but not as good as home made.

Whole Foods has a great chicken salad. Sonoma chicken salad. Has pecans, grapes, and overall great flavor.

I've tried it a few times and I'm just not a fan. I've tried their spicy chicken salad too.

Lang's is the sandwich type chick salad.

I don't enjoy making chicken salad. Too many places around to buy a decent one made fresh.
