This was a very nice, light summer salad. I cut the dressing in half, as the full amount seemed like too much for the chicken. I used light mayo, otherwise made as directed. The pine nuts and celery gave this a nice contrast of textures. My basil is going crazy right now, so this was a great way to use some of it up. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT8
