Chicken Salad - How long does it keep?

Recommended Posts

I made some homemade chicken salad Friday evening (just boiled chicken, homemade mayo and celery). How long do you think that will keep? We usually eat it in just a day or two, but I have some leftover today (Wednesday). Do you think it's still good?

My only concern is if you have difficulty with any molds...any food starts to break down after 24 hours.

We had a daughter that had systemic yeast infection(all fungusi are yeasts/molds/etc.) and while many of the whole30 eliminated things were eliminated then because of the sugar, they were also eliminated because of the possibility of baceria/mold growth. If anything was left over...ANYTHING...we had to throw it out if we didn't use it within 24 hours.

My son-in-law has gone to some sort of hazardous waste training - and he states 3 days....

If in doubt, throw it out....better than getting sick, eh?

Just fyi, ymmv
