Jenni's notes for this recipe:
I got this recipe from my aunt. It's great served on croissants. A little fancier than your standard chicken salad.

In a large bowl, combine the chicken, cherries, celery, apple, and pecans.
In another bowl, combine the mayo, buttermilk, salt and pepper. Add to the chicken mixture and mix well.
Spoon 1/2 cup of chicken salad onto each croissant. (or serve on whatever is your preference)

This sounds a lot like one of the many chicken salad recipes I have. Don't you just love how versatile it can be? I LOVE it with dried fruit and nuts in it. I've got one with curry and grapes I need to get posted. I've got this one saved too. Thanks for posting.
