Whenever Luci Knepper of Salem, Ohio takes this colorful salad to a ladies luncheon, she gets compliments. "Even my son loves this...and he doesn't care for either cheese or sour cream. The apples add interest and a little crunch...and you can easily substitute cooked chicken for the turkey," she suggests.
This started out as just a plain-tasting chicken salad. I changed some ingredients and added others. Now whenever I serve it, someone is sure to ask for my version of the recipe! Since I retired from teaching a few years ago, I've enjoyed having time to try new recipes and entertain!
June Mullins credits her sister for sharing this winning recipe, picked up at their Missouri State Fair several years ago. "Cucumbers, apples and a touch of curry make this salad distinctive," assesses June who lives near Livonia.
This salad is eye-catching enough to make any chef proud! It's served with a tangy buttermilk dressing that gets a little zip from white wine vinegar. Loretta Matzen shares the recipe from Coram, New York.
When you're looking for a cold salad to serve, turn here! Just combine the ingredients—eliminating the crushed potato chips—and serve chilled instead. Whether you serve it hot or cold, it's delicious.—Jane Payne, Twin Falls, Idaho
