Tropical Chicken Salad

Over the years my husband and I have moved to different areas, and I've collected recipes from all over the United States. This flavorful salad recipe comes from New York. I've served it for luncheons for many years, and it's one of my husband's very favorites. —Linda Wheatley, Garland, Texas
