About this recipe: This quick and easy chicken salad works perfectly as a sandwich filler. Chicken is tossed with spring onions, cranberries, apple and pecans in a mayonnaise-based dressing.
Fruity and Fabulous! This is a great chicken salad and a great way to use up some leftover grilled chicken that I hand on hand. I LOVE dried cranberries so this chicken salad was right up my alley. I chopped up the chicken and opted to used celery in place of the green onions. I also chopped up a Red Delicious apple vs. shredding it. I mixed the dressing in a separate bowl before folding it into the chicken and other ingredients. For the dressing I used Hellman's light mayo and cut it with a bit of reduced fat sour cream I also used curry powder vs. dill. I'm a huge fan of dill, but for this salad I felt the curry powder just paired better. I let this set in the fridge for a few hours, after sneaking a few bits and WOW, what a wonderful combination of flavors! This was so good on whole grain bread.

Made this today, it was DELICIOUS. I used red onion instead on green. I will definitely make this again! - 10 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was great but I did change a lot, I didn't use apples or lemon juice, I used walnuts, bacon, celery, and no onion. I served it on a good bread and it was wonderful, perfect for summer. Loved the dill - 29 Mar 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
