Got this recipe at Southern Living Cooking School. I really like it and make it year-round. Great for a light lunch.

- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- lettuce leaf
- Mix together first 9 ingredients in a large bowl.
- Cover and chill.
- Serve on lettuce leaves.
I just made and ate this delicious salad. I did not chill it in the fridge, as all the ingredients were already chilled, plus I subbed chopped, cooked turkey for the chicken. I also cut the recipe down to make a serving for 1 or 2 people, and may I say.... this sure was quite delish. I did however, omit the pecans, nor did I serve this on a lettuce leaf. To make a serving for 1 to 2 people, this is the amount of ingredients I used.... 1 cup chopped cooked turkey, 1/3 cup cut-up seedless green grapes, 1/4 cup thinly sliced celery, 1/3 of a large McIntosh apple, chopped, 1/3 cup of Kraft Mayonnaise, 1/2 tablespoon of French's Honey Mustard, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 1/16 teaspoon of black pepper. This salad is a great way to use up the leftover cooked turkey after Thanksgiving. Thanx for the recipe!
This is a wonderful chicken salad! I used walnuts instead of pecans, and shredded carrot because I was out of celery. I also added some chopped Maui onion, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime. I didn't think it needed any salt, just a little fresh ground pepper. Delicious!
Absolutely loved this! I've been looking a long, long time for a great chicken salad recipe and I've finally found it. Now to test it on the family.... Thanks!!
