    Mmmm Mmmm Good! I love Chicken salad and so does DH! He sometimes likes to eat it by itself,(not on bread), and this was really good and had lots of texture and flavor. Pretty too! Great to serve for a light lunch! I used lots of cracked black pepper. Otherwise wouldn't change a thing! Thanks :)

    Enjoyed this crunchy salad, I made it with leftover turkey and used pecans (out of walnuts) I used equeal amonuts of cream to mayo for a thicker dressing.

    We love Waldorf's with a twist. I made several from Zaar and they were all great, so was this one. This salad was made for lunch, it was substantial and still light. Did not make any changes and will certainly make this again!!!! Thanks Toolie!


<p>Gone, but not Forgotten. Where is she? someone asked. Not far was the loud response. Certainly not hiding in a large roasting pan, although I do have one about the size of a hog. <br /> <br />If I don't do this now, I never will, and if I never will, who will tell me if I am any good at the literature game? I am taking some time off to concentrate on writing a book...and you people have been distracting me. Oh yeah, sez you... What kinda book? Well, one with about 200 pages, give or take a dozen or so... maybe 300 who knows? Everyone knows Toolie has a lot to say at the best of times. <br /> <br />A DIY book??? Naaahhh, I'll leave that to the real mechanics at Canadian Tire and Home Depot. <br /> <br />A Recipe Book? Yeah, Right!!!! Like I would compete with this site or any other... Not in this lifetime... I have a tough enough time competing with some of you chefs, so I just don't, and won't. <br /> <br />Oh sure, I will cook some of your recipes, for special occasions. Pictures? Who knows? but don't hold your breath. Posting in the forums? Perhaps, but not on a regular basis... Posting recipes??? from time to time.... <br /> <br />Why hang around, you say? Because I wanna keep my terrific handle. There is only one TOOLBELT DIVA folks...
