This recipe comes from the 3 Fat Chicks website. I've made it several times already, and it's always been a bit hit with my family and guests. It's wonderful to serve on a hot summer's evening on the patio.

This is a really nice chicken salad recipe. I used regular mayonnaise (since that's what I have) and *love* all the basil. But no 'one' flavor dominates. This is delicious!!! Hot day in Seattle today and I'm taking this as part of a picnic lunch with a friend. : )
