    This is a very simple, fresh tasting salad that made a nice lunch. I agree with another reviewer and think next time I will decrease the mayonnaise just a little and increase the lime juice. The flavor of the fresh ginger was detectable but subtle to me. I added just a hint of salt to bring the flavors forward. Thanks for the opportunity to try something new.

    I loved this. Very nice lunch. I used canned chicken though because it was easy and I had it on hand.

    Yummy. I used almonds since I had them for something else anyway. Very good dressing. It made a nice, light dinner after a hot day. I will make this again. Thanks for posting.

    This is a marvelous chicken salad. Loved the combination of sweet fresh peaches and grated ginger. Subbed honey for the sugar but otherwise made no changes and won't next time. Terrific, Donna.

    Wonderfully fresh and light salad. I loved the lime/ginger combo for the dressing. I only made enough for myself with the last of the Beer Can Chicken (recipe #9549). I decreased the mayo and increased the lime juice. It was fab. I will make this again for a light lunch. I would even like it between 2 slices of hearty, multi-grain bread. Thanks for posting.
