I've made this a couple times! I recommend using real chopped onion instead of onion flakes. I used the flakes the first time and I couldn't taste them at all. The salad was much more flavorful the second time I made it with the diced onion. I also added extra garlic powder the second time. For the mayo, Kraft's reduced fat mayo with olive oil was perfect. I make this recipe with greek yogurt (not sour cream), and so far I've used both almonds and sunflower seeds.

  2. In a separate bowl combine the mayonnaise, celery salt, pepper, dried onion, garlic powder, and nuts or seeds.
  3. Add the mayonnaise mixture to the chicken and toss to combine; add additional sour cream or plain yogurt to achieve desired texture.
  4. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, then serve on croissant or on lettuce.
