A few changes and this is perfect: Skip the avocado (I love them, but in here they just add more FAT and not much excitment), skip the celery (too boring), add shredded carrots, an additional apple AND two green onions for a subtle kick. Also, use less Mayo for sure- just enough to hold it together. For presentation you can smush the folded together mix into a deep pie-type dish and put the chopped TOASTED walnuts on the top. Slice it like a pie and serve with a light veggie or lettuce for a super cute lunch. Our entire family LOVES this salad in this form, there are never any leftovers. Some of the guys even put it on a roll for a sandwich.

Definitely unique. My husband and I enjoyed this for a light dinner. I didn't use the avocado.

Fantastic recipe. I made a few changes: 1. Baked Chicken 45 Min @ 350 with walnuts next to chicken in a big toaster oven. 2. While that was cooking I prepared the rest of the salad and put it all in a bowl except the mayo. (didn't mix it yet). When finished in the frig it goes.3. Let the chicken cool until you can handle it, cube it and then toss it in the bowl with the mayo (I used half the recommended mayo). Mix and EAT!

It's pretty good, although next time I make it I'll make these changes: Only use 1/2 or a 1/3 of the mayo it calls for. Omit the avacado. It was too "savory", didn't fit with the rest of the salad Add some cinnamon.

This has potential, but there's WAY WAY too much mayo...I used half RF mayo and half RF sour cream. I like my food a bit more seasoned, so I added a touch of cilantro, 1/2 tsp kosher salt and 1/4 tsp onion powder. (Sounds odd, but it works well.) Good use of leftover chicken. 2 stars as is, 4 stars with the changes.

This was a hit. Left out the celery and added miracle whip instead of mayo. Boyfriend said he thought this could be a permanent recipe. That means he wants me to make it again.

This is a great recipe ALL YEAR ROUND...I took a review's advice and did not add onion or peppers but added 1 cup sliced green seedless grapes and 1 cup dried cranberries...including all other ingredients....I also added more mayo....You can kind of tell by the way it folds together....It was goooooood...Debra J
