Reviews for Chicken Rice Salad
"We love this salad and I have made it many times. The first was for a group of ladies for a luncheon. They loved it. This salad is so refreshing with the fruit, and a nice change from the usual potato or pasta salads."
"I had the magazine with this recipe in it for a few years and somehow lost it. My husband and I loved it and made it to take on road trips and eat out of pocket breads. I liked it with just Townhouse crackers! I'm so glad to see that it's out here because I couldn't replicate it from memory!!"
"I've made this over and over and always receive compliments"
