Creamy Cashew Chicken Salad Recipe

Publisher Photo
Served on a bed of garden greens or on a croissant, this all-time favorite salad is loaded with chicken and cashew. The nuts add a pleasant crunch and make it company-special. I thought of the recipe immediately when planning my garden theme luncheon. —Sara Laker Loda, Illinois
