MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 2, 2014

Love chicken salad and always like trying it with new and different ingredients. Perfect hot weather lunch, with fruit on the side.

MY REVIEW

I make this all the time, always delicious.

This was good but it was missing something.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 17, 2012

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.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 9, 2012

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!
