This is one of my new favorite sandwiches. My husband recently came up with the recipe, and we can't get enough. It could also be served on top of lettuce or inside a hollowed out tomato instead of adding the diced tomato. The ingredients combine to the perfect mixture of salty, sweet, and savory. Enjoy!

This is an easy and tasty chicken salad to throw together in a pinch. One thing we loved about this salad is it is not a large salad, just a few servings. Great if you're only cooking for two. The apples and cranberries give a little bit of sweetness while the pecans add a certain nuttiness to balance things out. We love the textures and flavors combination. This is really good stuffed in a pita bread but serve on your favorite bread. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
