Chicken salad

"A fruity and light salad, great for summer lunches served with hot buttered baguette and iced tea or a chilled beer! It's also perfect for a pic-nic or a barbecue -as a side dish-, or even for brunch"

  1. Had some left over Thanksgiving Turkey so I used that - Easy recipe - I had all the ingredients (even picked the apple right off the tree) but did substitute No fat Honey Dijon dressing. Lovely lunch thanks Adrimicina
  2. I really liked this recipe, as did the staff at the high school! It was gone immediatly! I don't like walnuts, so I did use chopped casshew beer nuts. Also used sour cream since I had it. I will make this a lot...thanks!
  3. Very good simple-to-make chicken salad which we enjoyed. I really liked the addition of chives in the dressing, but I made one subsitution instead of the creme fraiche or Greek yogurt I subsituted sour cream, which worked out very well for us. Thanks for sharing this keeper salad. We will be having this again this summer.


I live in a tiny flat in the center of Milan with my sweet dachshund dog named Penelope (Penny). I'm a doctor specializing in family medicine, though everybody tends to think I'm the nurse or the assistant, or perhaps even a student since I tend to look a lot younger than I am....everybody tells me I'm going to appreciate it, but for now I still find it a little annoying!! I've always loved cooking, when I was a child I wanted to be a patisserie cook (not sure the word is correct...), and I still can't understand how I got to be a doctor instead...anyway I still enjoy cooking at any time, and cooking for friends and family (Penelope included) is my weird way to show them my love (;P)
