Served this on good rolls for Fourth of July dinner. I'd been looking forward to making this recipe for awhile! Since I'm visiting in D.C. maybe I can check out the original version at Suzanne's. I loved the raspberry vinegar (mine was black raspberry) and dill combo (couldn't use as much dill since mine had gotten soggy with refrig.). I used a horseradish dijon mustard (Stonewall Kitchen brand) and a equal mix of plain yogurt and light mayonnaise (perfect) and added a sprinkle of poppy seeds. Even my two kids (14, 12) ate without any complaints! Roxygirl in Colo.
Took this to work today to pamper my staff. They loved it! Wonderful flavor and nice balance of chicken and veggies. Thanks!
Wonderful Chicken Salad!!! This salad has an amazing taste! I will make this over and over. Next time I will add pecans! Thank you for a wonderful recipe!
