Chicken 'n' Fruit Salad
THIS SALAD has been on my menus for more than 20 years. We love it when traveling in the summer in our motor home as it so easy to fix and we carry most of the ingredients with us. It’s also a good dish for potlucks at church and other club groups. Assorted crackers and cheese are compatible accompaniments.
