How to Make the Best-Ever Chicken Salad

TIP: When you food process anything in a Vitamix, don’t add more than what will reach the 1 and 1/2 cup line on the container. I usually do each ingredient one at a time. I love my 32 oz. Wet Blade Container for food processing and making Peanut Butter because it is easier to get the ingredients out of the smaller container.


  • Cooked chicken breast
  • Carrot (5-6 baby carrots)
  • Celery (one medium stalk)
  • Sweet Onion (about 1/4 of a medium onion)

Optional Add-Ins:

  • Apple
  • Walnuts
  • Broccoli


TIP: I use variable speed from between 1-3 to chop the ingredients.

Remember, put each ingredient into your mixing bowl after chopping them in the Vita-Mix. I don’t clean out the container between each ingredient, I just get the bulk of one ingredient out of the container before chopping up the next ingredient!

Then, I add some mayonnaise and sweet relish to taste.
