"My boyfriend is not a fan of pasta salads and he couldn't get enough of it! You can omit the pasta and place salad on sandwich roll or bread for a yummy chicken salad sandwich."

Made this recipe almost as is(added a little more chicken). It was great. Put a little curry powder in the leftovers, it was also great. Just a little different.

Most helpful critical review

The dressing was way to sweet just using poppyseed. Needs salt and pepper as well. Use red onion for best balance. I use spiral pasta and omit nuts.

Loved this salad. I really liked the poppy seed dressing in place of the usual mayo. The cranberries were a nice addition.
