    Kerfuffle-Upon-Wincle's Note:

    From The Gadsden Times (online edition) by Mary Lucille Jordan. Can be made with poached or roasted chicken or turkey. Dried cranberries can be substituted for the raisins -- diced celery can be substituted for the onions! Chill if desired, or serve immediately. -------- The salad pictured is made with raisins, both celery and green onions to fill the 1/3 cup measure, (not 1/3 cup of each), and about twice the amount of toasted almonds as called for in the recipe -- the almonds were so good I couldn't resist doubling the amount! It is a nice combination of flavors -- NOTE: salt and pepper can be added to taste.

      Yummy chicken salad! I used cranberries and celery. I loved the flavor of the mustard/mayo dressing and didn't need to add any salt or pepper. Served in romaine lettuce "boats" and really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe!

      I shredded my chicken instead of having it diced, but otherwise followed the recipe. Very good, and I enjoyed mine over baby arugula. Made for Rookie tag game! Thanks for sharing!

      Mmmmmmm! I had some leftover chicken and this was a perfect use for it. Used chopped frozen cranberries as they have less sugar than the dried ones. the apple juice was inspired and really elevated the recipe. I think that French Tart's idea of adding apple would be great too but I didn't add any this time. This is creamy, a little sweet, a little tangy and all together marvelous.
