"I really wanted to like this...I'm sorry. It wasn't that great-there was just too much going on and not as much flavor as I would have liked."

"OMG, this is the best chicken Salad I've ever made. I think the secret is in the Worschester sauce, who would of thought? Plus, I always add 4 heaping tablespoons of fat free cool whip to my mayo salads and I use light mayo to cut down on the fat calories. Yummo."
