This is a hearty salad that can be served in wraps, croissants, sandwiches, or on top of lettuce. Cooked meat and mayonnaise-type salads can be traced to America’s founding, and “meat salads” were popular main dish recipes in the 1800s. Household meat choppers appeared in the mid- to late-19th century and made chopped meat salads an easy American staple. Chunky and crunchy with tart, sweet flavors, variations include the addition of grapes or apple slices.
