My 6 year old loves this recipe. It is one of her favorite things to take in her lunch box (just the salad, no bread is how she prefers it). It's very simple to make and it great for potlucks, or large get-together's.
Wednesday's, the Whole Foods in Fort Collins has their rotisserie chicken sale. This is typically when I pick one up, if I don't make a roasted chicken at home. Its easy and flavorful. You can easily roast a whole chicken in the crockpot, come home, shred it, make your salad and have a quick dinner. (I love my crockpot, what a time saver) Crockpot Rotisserie Chicken
The key to this dish is a good quality mayo. If you are on top of things, you can make your own fairly easily. If you are more like me, you prefer to buy a good quality mayo. Homemade Mayo
