This is such a different take on an ordinary chicken salad recipe. Huge hit at potlucks!

Top Review by Chef PotPie

This is a great salad, very tasty! I could drink the dressing, it is fabulous. This would make a very nice summer supper or would go over well at a potluck, I think. I made it just as directed, but halved the recipe, and it would make 6 large servings easily, so the recipe as written would be a big enough amount to take to serve 12-16 as a side at a potluck. I know my family will love this salad, and my daughter will go berserk over it! Made for PAC Spring 2012.
