I first had this at a friend's daughter's wedding reception and had to have the recipe. My friend made this for 150 guests. There are three key's to this recipe: 1. Mayonnaise, not Miracle Whip, 2. poultry seasoning, and 3. time in the frig. There are numerous other options; I think I've tried them all and are always asked for the recipe, so here 'tis.

Directions

  1. Blend first eight ingredients in large bowl;(reserve the cashews until later).
  2. Mix dressing ingredients well in small bowl.
  3. Toss with chicken mixture and refrigerate for several hours; (this is best if refrigerated over night).
  4. Before serving, add cashews and let sit for ~30 minutes. You can garnish with cherry tomatoes, cold asparagus, or even hard-boiled eggs.
  5. This salad is delicious served on a warm day stuffed in a cold ripe tomato and served on a crisp lettuce leaf with chilled lemon drenched asparagus on the side next to a warmed croissant. Hope you enjoy!
