This is very rich and very different from any other chicken salad I have had. It is very easy to make low fat by using low fat Miracle whip and cream cheese. I have always loved the combination of sweet and salty so this works for me but it does seem to be a love it or hate it kind of recipe. I hope you love it! :wink:
