      Delicious! This reminded me of a holiday cheese ball my mom used to make. The flavors blended well together and there was a nice crunch to the salad. Other than draining the water chestnuts I followed the recipe. I'll definitely make this again. Next time though I may add a little more seasonings. Made for Pick A Chef 2013.

      Nice variation on chicken salad! The assortment of veggies add a nice crunch and the pineapple and almonds add a nice touch. Thanks for sharing! PAC Spring '11
