Quick and Crunchy Chicken Salad Recipe

Quick and Crunchy Chicken Salad Recipe

When I was first married, I experimented with a lot of recipes. I guess I got carried away. My husband told me that although he enjoyed trying new recipes, sometimes he'd like to have something familiar. I've arrived at a happy medium since then. This is one "test" that's become a favorite!
