Chicken Salad Tea Room Style

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by GypsyAnn

This is my version of a local tea room/ice cream shop that serves the best chicken salad I've ever had. What makes it so good is the contrast of sweet fruit, the crunchiness of the nuts and a hint of tangy lemon.

GypsyAnn this is perfect in every respect! DH wants more. I did use sliced honey roasted almonds but only because I did not have any walnuts. Thank you for sharing a keeper:) Made for PAC Spring '08.
