I don't have one, but I think that's a great idea.

Yeah, I love them, especially with cilantro and some kind of onion. I'm looking for some kind of protein "salad" that I can grab in the morning so I can take my meds pretty quick.

Tomorrow, I will forage in the canned section of the store, maybe pick up some hearts of palm, or black olives, or gluten free fried onions, or maybe more water chestnuts. I'll see what they have, but canned peas are out. I need more smoked almonds. I hope they have some more Macadamia nuts and things. I have pine nuts that I can toast, but I might save those for another meat salad, like chicken. Again. Sigh.

I'm thinking of digging out my old hand mixer and seeing how it works on mashing up steamed eggs.

Yep! And I JUST went shopping and forgot the red onion! I'm sobbing now. Also, I couldn't find diced water chestnuts, or any water chestnuts, but I did find hearts of palm, which are way lower in carbs, so I will use those. I do have shallots; maybe I can use those, instead. But I doubt they'll be as good as red onions. I got some Italian sausage with cheddar (didn't realize it had cheddar-oh, well!) for the egg salad, to spice it up. I also picked up three bags of smoked almonds. They don't have them all the time. (Aldi's.) I also got the carmelized onion dip which I will mix in. For the heck of it.

For the chicken, I think I will use prosciutto with some frozen blueberries and some tiny bits of coconut with the chicken salad. I got enough chicken in one package to feed a horse. I might have to cook the chicken and the freeze part of it. I saw the freeze dried blueberries at Trader Joe's and they listed 31 carbs per servings. Umm...yeah, no. I'll risk having blue chicken salad. Or maybe slice up frozen strawberries in there. Each meal, not in the big bowl.

When I make deviled eggs I mash the yolks up some with a fork, add the ingredients, then whip it all up with my hand mixer. It works great.

My mom used to make crab dip for parties that was just canned crab, shredded water chestnuts and mayo. We ate it on Fritos, but a spoon would work too.

Fritos sound wonderful! I have low carb tortilla chips that will work, too.

I took a break from the regular chicken salad because of stuff in my life happening, and, well, because I was bored. Anyway, I used the chicken breasts that I made and used the for sandwich meat; some I froze. but tonight I made a sort of chicken salad with salsa, which turned out to be the hot kind, which I hate. But, I added mayonnaise which really cuts the spicy. It's delicious. I'll probably get back to my routine next week some time.

I saw a recipe for chicken patties (like salmon or tuna patties, but with chopped chicken), and thought of you because you eat a lot of chicken.

You chop the raw meat fine, add onion, seasonings, maybe some cheese, a bit of almond or flax meal and an egg for binding, then form it into patties and pan-fry.

I think it would be easy to make a batch of them up and have them handy for quick lunches. And definitely different than beef burgers.

That sounds like a really good idea! Thanks!

Just occurred to me that years ago, I made an Italian chicken salad created by Giada from the food network. It's served in lettuce cups and contains no mayo, but, instead, sliced red onion, roasted red peppers, parsley, and an Italian vinaigrette.

Very good, different, and easy to make if you already have cooked chicken and roasted red peppers in a jar.

You can look up "Italian Chicken Salad in Lettuce Cups".

I can't add to all the suggestions in this thread, but I am marking it so I can find it again. I usually just like basic chicken and tuna salad, just with mayo and a bit of minced celery and onion, but adding hearts of palm would be interesting. Unfortunately I don't like the texture of canned chicken and can only make it from fresh cooked.

The crab dip sounds very interesting and I will try that one when I have people over for the holidays. It would be good using it to fill in the grove in a rib of celery.

Giada has great ideas, I do have to say.

So, I got back into making an egg salad and it's really good. As usual, eggs, a French's style mustard, sliced water chestnuts (two cans), a small shallot, a lot of smoked almonds, mayonnaise and some Italian meat, like a prosciutto, only drier and less soft. The prosciutto was a little too soft and mushy for the egg salad.

I thought the shallot would be too harsh for the egg salad but I was pleasantly surprised. I was going to add hemp seeds, since I like the flavor, but the texture wasn't right, either. And I didn't add pine nuts, either. Just too many nuts for the whole dish, I guess.

On the whole, it was very sweet. I had to check to see if the mustard had sugar in it. It doesn't. It's the shallot that makes it that way.

The eggs were kind of weird, though. They were a little brown, like they were overcooked, but they were tender as usual. I don't know if they were really old or not. I got them just a couple of weeks ago.
