Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hidden Valley Ranch adds alot of flavor The Hidden Valley Ranch adds a lot of flavor to the chicken however, I would add dried cranberries or dried blueberries to the mix

Rated 5 out of 5 by from yummy-licious. and really easy This recipe substitutes Ranch for mayo in the chicken salad and it tastes SO MUCH BETTER! I cut everything the same size (size of half of a grape) and the combo of juicy grapes, crunchy celery, chicken and just a little bit of green onion was amazing. I am a Ranch chicken salad convert now. I doubled the recipe and put the chicken salad in little 'lettuce cups' from two heads of butter lettuce and they looked so cute and tasted delish. Thanks Hidden Valley Ranch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick & Delicious We love chicken salad and this recipe is delicious. I've always used mayo but replacing it with ranch dressing takes it to the next level. We eat it on lettuce leaves, it taste so fresh and adds some extra crunch. Yummy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from we have this once or twice a week during the summer as it is a simple cool meal that I know my family loves that doesn't heat up the house

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks like plastic! When are y'all going to test these recipets? I wasted money on a mix the dog won't even eat. The only taste is soupy lemon juice. Way too bland for southern taste. The Hidden Valley Ranch dressing just gave it an unappetizing translucent look to assist my gag response. Here in the south we like a creamy rich taste for a summertime dish. Maybe a packet of Hidden Valley dry mix and straight up mayonaise would have done it justise. I dare you to make and consume this yourself before you represent it and use the fine name of Hidden Valley Ranch, at least find out what good chicken salad is before giving this poor example as a consumable summertime dish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad Great for my husband and I, but the kids didn't like it. No surprise, I guess. Go for it, Parents!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sounds great; may add twists I think I'll try this on baby spinach with some golden raisins and or dried cranberries (craisins). Switching to walnuts or pistachios may add a nutritional boost, as well.
