This is it - Croissant Chicken Salad Sandwich

Tammy T


I have had a craving for some reason for a croissant sandwich and wanted something different. I came upon this recipe and thought "this is it"! I love the grapes and the cashews and the havarti cheese. Everything sounds so fresh and tastey! I just love the freshness and the sweet and saltiness of this and it got 5 star ratings from everyone so - this is it! Just thought I would share it in case anyone else has this same craving. We're talking about a croissant and fresh chicken salad here!
