Chicken Salad is crisp, crunchy, and delectable. It is also the perfect grab-and-go meal for any busy weekday and the perfect addition to luncheons. But, how long will it last?
This dish is one of those that can be made ahead of time and still tastes delicious after a few days. However, many of us may wonder just how long does it last? How do we properly store it to taste just as fresh as it was the first day we made it?
How Do You Store It?
It is best stored in a leak-proof airtight container for 3-to-5 days in the refrigerator. This makes the perfect make-ahead lunch.
How Long Does It Last?
It will typically last for 3-to-5 days in the refrigerator if stored in an air-tight container.
It is not recommended to be frozen as the chicken, fruit, and/or nuts will not thaw out and taste as fresh as stored in the refrigerator.
If you’re serving it at a luncheon or party, it is best to not leave it sitting at room temperature for more than 2 hours. (This is especially true if you use mayonnaise, as mayonnaise contains eggs).
