I loved the unusual flavor combinations of this chicken salad. I made tortilla rollups with it. The only problem was that the end result was much too salty, which is odd because the recipe does not call for salt and I didn't add any. I even used low-sodium bacon. I did use store-bought pre-cooked chicken breast strips and they must have been saltier than I realized. Thank you for the recipe Ginny Sue!
