I really love chicken salad, and if it has dried cherries in it, that is a huge bonus! I wanted to make my own, so I searched and found this one. I just love allrecipes.com. Mostly because you can search by ingredient.
Anyway, what a great basic chicken salad! I will definitely make this again. I'd love to experiment with it in the future. I think it could be modified just a tad and be spectacular!!
* 3 cooked, boneless chicken breast halves, diced * 1/3 cup dried cherries * 1/3 cup diced celery * 1/3 cup toasted, chopped pecans * 1/3 cup low-fat mayonnaise * 1 tablespoon buttermilk * 1/2 teaspoon salt * 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper * 1/3 cup cubed apples (optional)
1. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, dried cherries, celery, nuts, mayonnaise, milk, salt and pepper and apple if desired. Toss together well and refrigerate until chilled. Serve on toasted cracked wheat bread or croissants.
