"LOVED this. So easy and perfect for a night when the temp is near 100 degrees - no oven, no grill, no stove. (I always have diced cooked chicken in the freezer.)

Only change I would make would be to omit the 1/2 tsp. salt if you use salted cashews. I also used Miracle Whip instead of mayo for the added "zing". Would consider serving this just on leaves of lettuce instead of buns for those less hearty appetites."

"I made this for a group of men and they loved it. If I were eating it, I would want more sauce, I thought it appeared dry but they thought it was great!"

"Very delicious, easy and fast to make. I will defiantly be making this on the regular for my family. Try a wrap instead of a bun like I did."

"I make this recipe at least once a month. I use English cucumbers and don't peel them. And since I don't eat bread or rolls, I substituted that for flour tortillas which I will eat once in a while. This recipe has been passed along to friends."
