Exotic Luncheon Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Ridgely

A chicken salad with fruit, nuts and and some interesting spices. This recipe comes from a cookbook that my mother gave me that is about 20 years old called "With Singleness of Heart". I will post the recipe as is, because it is really good, however I strongly recommend cutting back on the amount of mayonnaise and using a low-fat version. This recipe is suppose to feed 25 in lettuce cups.

This is one of the best chicken salads I have had. Must admit, I didn't have any whipping cream so left that out and used lf mayonnaise. Definitly a do again recipe.
