MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 8, 2013

I left out the raisins feeling the grapes were enough for our taste. Otherwise, a great, easy to prepare salad.

I made this chicken salad for lunch today and thought it was excellent. It was very easy to prepare. I did toast the pecans as I feel it brings out their flavor. My husband loved it as did I. We will definitely have this chicken salad again and I highly recommend it.

Lacking something. Lacking a little flavor. Maybe another spice. Sugar? More salt? Some other spice?

I left out the raisins but didn't need to add anything else - served on croissants - husband said he could eat this once a week and wanted to know if I got the recipe from my grandmother!
