This is a great salad to eat on hot days of summer. It came about because I needed something for a picnic but I didn't want to bring two different salads. We love chicken salad and we love pea salad so I thought why not put them together. It is nice alone or served on top of fresh salad greens. I have also done a veggie chicken salad where I added frozen carrots and fresh zucchini chopped to it. The recipe is very versatile and can be changed to suit your taste and health preferences . It serves a large crowd and paired with fresh fruit plate it makes a whole meal.
