Recipe by Colorado Lauralee
This salad is almost entirely made up of fresh fruits and chicken. The taste just cannot be beat! I have fixed this for years, and it is a favorite. I think I remember finding this recipe in a Cookbook containing favorite recipes from Home Economics Teachers.
- 1 fresh pineapple
- 1 1⁄2 cups cubed cooked chicken
- 1 cup chopped celery
- 1 cup halved green grape
- 1⁄2 cup chopped walnuts
