READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by HokiesMom

From a Betty Crocker Booklet from 1992. Very nice salad with the addition of the aspargus and nuts. You can use either white or green asparagus. Allow at least 2 hours of chilling time before being able to serve.

Fantastic chicken salad with a touch of citrus. I loved the asparagus. I used tiny, thin spears and steamed them very lightly so they weren't mushy. I added some chopped purple onion, but otherwise I stuck to the recipe. This makes a very nce, impressive lunch salad served over red and green Bibb lettuce. Thanx for posting this!
