Chicken Salad Santa Fe

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

This came from one of my new cookbooks with recipes from around the United States. This one happened to be from New Mexico, which I thought was ironic because it's got Santa Fe in the title. Upon reading the description, the contributer owned a restaurant in Texas and upon retirement moved to New Mexico. This was claimed to be an exclusive and very popular salad. Passive time is chill time.

I fixed this salad for my Bunko group and it was a hit! I used rotesserie chicken and added the tomatoes and cilantro on top for color. This was delicious and will be a regular on my table! For Remembering Amy
