(Belated) Recipe Round Up: Chicken Salad with Bacon and Gorgonzola

This salad is simple and it is delicious. I started with a recipe I found online, but tweaked it for our own tastes. I don't care for most bleu cheese, but can eat dolce gorgonzola pretty well. This is one of only a few ways I like bleu cheese, so if you don't care for it, this may still be something you might like. We double this recipe for our family.

3 cups cooked, chopped chicken breast (I roast them with seasoning and a little olive oil if I don't have leftovers)
8 strips cooked crumbled bacon
1/4 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese
3 stalks celery, finely chopped, including leaves
1/4 cup finely chopped Italian parsley
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/2 cup mayonnaise (using lime juice instead of lemon juice)
1 cup bleu cheese dressing (using lime juice instead of lemon juice)
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
kosher salt to taste

Place all ingredients into a large bowl. Stir to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary. Serve inside toasted croissants or rolls.
