    I used about 2-1/2 cups cooked turkey that I had frozen in my freezer for this in place of the chicken, also I increased the dressing slightly and used mayonnaise in place salad dressing as that is all I ever use, this is simply delicious, thanks for sharing Charmie!...Kitten

    This may well become my favorite chicken salad too, Charmie - Perfect for a brunch, luncheon or pot-luck dish. Made it exactly as written, but since add-ins were suggested as an option … I also used cilantro for its color & flavor + 2 tbsp of raisins I soaked in the extra pineapple juice. I served it as a salad plate w/cucumber, egg & tomato slices at its side. The combo of fruits compliments the chicken very well & the almonds add a lovely textural crunch. Thx for posting this great recipe! It’s a keeper for us & will be enjoyed often. :-)
