You are right, Dorothy. This was a perfect take to work lunch salad. Simple yet flavor-filled ingredients. I made enough to serve 6 because I needed to use up some left-over chicken. My husband and I will eat on it the rest of the week. I sprinkled some sunflower seeds on top which added to the crunch. Thanks for another great recipe.

I did as you suggested and packed this as my lunch. This is a great salad. I sprinkled with toasted walnuts but just about any nut would work. Nice and light. Excellent flavor. Thanks Dorothy.

Another winner from Derf. We really enjoyed this tasty salad. I so enjoyed this recipe that I have made it twice already. It's quick and easy to make and tastes amazing. So much flavor and texture. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe that is going into my keeper box. With recipes like this, I am really starting to enjoy salads, thank you so much.

so yummy. i mixed up the apple and celery amounts, omitted the raisins, and used a light honey mustard dressing...next time i might try using the canned chicken to make this, and i'm cutting back on the amount of salad dressing. i ate it as a sanwich for lunch...so good

Did not have the raisins. But, even without, this is a delicious chicken salad. Will make again.

This was a good alternative to the normal lunch fare. I used mayo and left out the brown sugar. I carried the sald to work in a container and then put it in a pita bread. I found it a nice change for lunch, definitely better than fast food.

Yummy!!! I'm sitting here eating this right now. I could eat this everyday. I toasted some pecan halves and mixed them in. Got it on a bed of lettuce. The dressing is so good, a very nice change from the mayo type.

This salad was AMAZING! I made it for lunch yesterday (with a few modifications, in order to fit what I have on hand) and it was *the best* salad I've ever eaten. Good enough to be from a restaurant. :D<br/>A nice change from having deli meat sandwiches every day. And it filled me up for a good 3 hours. :)

Wonderful salad! I didn't have any raisins and added some cut up baby carrots. I also added cumin and cayenne pepper. Made for a simple lunch and I'm making more this week for lunches to use up the apples!! YUM!
