Wendy, I really liked this simple salad. I was intrigued by the "old church cookbook" when I was reading your comments, so I had to try it. I usually use dill pickles in my chicken salad, but the sweet pickles were good too, and I loved the pecans. I used this as a sandwich filling in those huge croissants from Sam's Club. Believe me, on a hot evening no one wants to cook around here, and this was a great recipe to try. We loved it. Thanks for posting this simple, delicious, recipe.
This made a nice tasting chicken salad. the only thing I did different was to add more mayonnaise and chopped sweet pickles per my husband request. Thanks Wendy N. bullwinkle
Tasty, very easy to make. It probably could have used more mayo, but I kept it like this to keep the calories low. Crunchy and healthy tasting. Even better the second day!
