"With apples and dried cranberries for color and tang, this dressed-up chicken salad is wonderful on bread triangles or served on a lettuce leaf."

Made this on a whim with some left over chicken I have, and so pleasantly surprised, that decided to take to work for coworkers birthday party. This is a definite keeper!
Oh my! This is great chicken salad! I used left-over seasoned chicken in it, trying not to throw it out or waste it. Boy, am I glad I did! I have made this before and subbed lemon juice for the lime and a little regular onion for the green onion with no harm done at all. I always use Hellman's Light Mayo. One time I tried to lighten it up even more by using 1/2 cup plain yogurt and 1/4 cup light mayo. Still delicious!
I was not exactly sure how they would turn out...but I was pleasantly surprised! Several people were commenting how delicious the chicken sandwiches were. It was great since we had over 20 people over for mother's day brunch. :)
Recipe Group Selection: 01, June 2013 ~ A delicious, filling summer sandwich. Family really enjoyed this chicken salad. I did omit the pecans so that my son would eat it. I served it on a multi-grain French bread and used fresh spinach leaves rather than lettuce as it is what I had on hand. I liked the added flavor that the fresh lime juice gave to the mayonnaise. I served this with a pasta salad and fresh fruit and it was so nice out today, we ate outside on the patio.
Made this for Recipe Group. It is wonderful! I love chicken salad with curry in it, and this is my new favorite. I didn't have lime the first time I made it, so I used lemon juice. I didn't notice any difference in taste when I used lime. The second time I sprinkled in a little more curry and I peeled the apple (both just my preference). This recipe is perfect as written! Thank you pattycakes!
Made this for Recipe Group...LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this! I just made regular sandwiches out of this, but this would be wonderful on croissants or even crackers for that matter. I found myself just eating it by the spoonful, it's that good! Great combination of flavors/textures. A definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sahring. :)
This was the recipe group selection for the week. I did use some rotisserie chicken so I didn't have to cook the chicken, which made this a breeze to whip up on a hot humid night. We served on some nice fresh bakery onion rolls since just the hubs and I. What a delicious salad, just the perfect combination of tangy fruit, creamy dressing and fresh crunchy veggies and nuts. So darn good you don't even need any bread.
This was extremely good!
