Exotic Chicken Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Starrynews

I tried this at a bridal shower and just had to get the recipe! It's so simple and delicious. Be sure that you don't add the cashews early- they get a little mushy.

This was a very tasty chicken salad. I omitted the salad oil from the dressing, because the consistency was perfect after the addition of the orange juice and vinegar. I loved the cashews in the salad- actually added a pinch extra because they are one of my favorite nuts. I only wish the dressing would have picked up a bit more of an orange flavor. I think next time I will grate a little fresh orange zest into the mixture before I serve it. Thanks for posting this recipe Starry. Made and reviewed for the Feb.-Mar./Special Event 2010 Potluck Tag Game.
