I was in Publix the other day and they were sampling Boar's Head's new products. They had this chicken salad that I tasted and loved. I decided to make it for two reasons: first, it was super fast and easy and secondly I wanted to see if I liked it as much at home as I did when I was breaking the cardinal rule of grocery shopping, shopping famished. I asked the lady what was in it. Other than the 1/2 pound of meat, I got no real proportions, but this is pretty close. The salad requires no seasoning, as the meat and cheese are really seasoned. It would make a great lunch, but we had it for dinner just because it was a busy night with lots of stuff to do and no real time. The boys had sandwiches, but I would like to have it be the "dressing" on a salad or filled in lettuce cups next time.(I had mine on black pepper triscuts.) It is a stellar meal? No. Is it tasty and fast and worth it? Yes. The biggest issue I have, is that the gouda makes for a slightly more mushy texture than I expect from chicken salad.
