I had one similar at Sweet Tomatoes and loved it. I made the recipe without the nuts and added
some thawed frozen peas and some finely chopped red onion. It was wonderful. My husband loved it. It is great with leftover chicken. Thanks, Carole in Orlando

This was a nice way to use grilled chicken breasts I had left over. I used less mayonnaise and sour cream (personal preference) and added more cashews. It was fine as it was, but I added sliced green onions the next day to what was left and liked it even more. Thanks for posting!

This salad is so rich and creamy! The only thing I added was some minced red pepper for color, and instead of mixing in the cashews I sprinkled them on top for crunch power.. I served it on a red cabbage leaf garnished the top with a sprinkling of alfalfa spouts, and a piece of marinated artichoke. Green and black olives around the side and our lunch was complete. I cannot wait for extra Thanksgiving turkey to make this again! Thanks Nancy for this's a keeper!
