Reviews for Chicken Fruit Salad
"I've made this twice already and it's delicious. My husband and I ate the entire first batch in one day. My kids don't like it but it's probably because of the dressing and the nuts. I would recommend it anyway!! Dressing is good with Miracle Whip Light instead of mayo (less fat)."
"There is no fiber in this recipe? Are there other mistakes on the page as well? Otherwise, it looks great! I will try this one!"
