What did come first: the chicken salad or the egg salad? Perhaps the better question is why we separate these two savory, hearty ingredients from a partnership in a creamy lunchtime spread! The Chicken or the Egg Salad might not solve any philosophical debates, but it can certainly settle the question of what to eat! Each bite is herbaceous and crunchy with juicy celery, with the best of both chicken salad and egg salad in its proteins! The new question will be whether to enjoy the Chicken or the Egg Salad for lunch or for dinner (and the answer is both)!
