I had a similar chicken salad at a restaurant and created my own version. It may seem like an odd combination, but the ingredients work really well together. My children love it, and it only takes a few minutes to cut everything up—so easy!

Health tip
  • Croissants make these sandwiches special, but you can switch to whole wheat bread and save nearly 100 calories per serving.
  • Test Kitchen tip
  • If you don't keep dried cherries on hand, dried cranberries would also taste wonderful.
