How to Make Not Your Mother's Chicken Salad


  1. Mix the dressing ingredients thoroughly and set aside.
  2. prepare the salad ingredients (chopping and dicing), do apples last.

    Toss gently in dressing, making sure to cover all the fruits and vegetable completely.
  3. I like to serve these in a croissant or in a romaine leaf, either way it is fabulous!
