Green Olive Chicken Salad

Anita loves olives, so this variation on chicken salad was a big hit with her.

The olives add just the right amount of saltiness to the sandwich. I got the original recipe from Kalyn's Kitchen.

Makes: Enough for 6 sandwiches
Prep time: 10 minutes
Printable Recipe


  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 1 cup large stuffed green olives, sliced
  • 1/2 cup green onions, sliced
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 t brine from olive jar
  • 2 t fresh lemon juice
  • 1 t Dijon mustard
  • 1 t celery seed

1. Combine the mayonnaise, olive brine, lemon juice, Dijon, and celery seed and a bowl. Season with pepper (and maybe a little salt. Add to taste as the olives are salty) and mix well.

2. In a separate bowl, combine the chicken, celery, and green onions. Add the dressing in batches, stirring. Gently mix in the olives. Serve over toasted bread.
