Classic Chicken Salad

I haven't tried this particular recipe, I confess, but it's from a tried and true cookbook (an older edition of the Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook). I never measure "stuff" when I throw together chicken salad, so this recipe is for those of you who need a little guide. Feel free to add and take away whatever strikes your fancy (extra chopped veggies, etc.).

3 cups cubed cooked chicken

1 1/2 cups diced celery

3 hard-cook eggs, quartered

3 sweet pickles, chopped

1 teaspoon salt

mayonnaise or salad dressing

Mix chicken, celery, eggs, pickles, and salt. Moisten with mayonnaise.

Serves 8.
