Used different ingredients. This is a wonderful chicken salad recipe. I omitted the green pepper and added chopped apples and sliced grapes. I highly recommend giving this recipe a go. I'm glad I did! - 18 Jul 2008


Used different ingredients. This is BY FAR the most fabulous chicken salad I have EVER had! To add maximum flavour, I saute'd my onions in butter prior to adding them to the salad. I threw in a handful of sunflower seeds, and seedless green grapes. I toasted my pecans before adding them. The flavours are so wonderful together. This chicken salad definately melts in your mouth. I can't wait to make this for a crowd of people!! THANKS SO MUCH, Elaine, this is truly spectacular!!!! - 18 Jul 2008
