My family LOVED this recipe! I served for a large family party and everyone couldn't stop talking about how delicious it was. Everyone that has tried it has been clamoring for the recipe.

The only slight change I would make would be to refrigerate the salad for a few hours (even overnight) to allow the flavors to blend together more. I think it tasted much better after it was chilled.

I will definitely be making this often!! Thank you so much for sharing!!

Loved this recipe!

I made it vegan and brought it to a (omnivore attended) beach bonfire. It was the hit of the night! A wonderful summertime meal.

Vegan edits:

* Use reduced fat Vegenaise instead of mayo
* Use Soy Curls in place of chicken (rehydrate soy curls in 1 cup veggie broth, 1 cup water, 1 tbsp soy sauce and 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke. Squeeze soy curls free of liquid. Heat olive oil in fry pan and saute rehydrated soy curls with salt/fresh pepper until lightly brown. Allow to cool before adding to recipe.)
* Use sourdough instead of croissant

I thought this was pretty good overall, but too much mayo for me. I would have liked it much better with only 1/2 cup.
