A little too sweet. I really like this but I had to cut out some of the honey mayonnaise dressing as it was way to much for me. I used the sweetened craisins with reduced sugar, it was way too sweet! Lol, I think I'll go with unsweetened cranberries or rasins next time. Great recipe!
I love this recipe. We've made it about three times now. I have made a few tweaks though. For one, I only add 1/2 cup of mayo, and substitute another half cup with sour cream. I have added a couple more spoonfuls of the sour cream if needed. I also just use any nuts that I have on hand, which is always almond. For the cranberries I use cherry juice infused, but I'm sure it will be great with any flavor. I use a rotisserie chicken and this last time I used cucumber. The cucumber was great but I do prefer the celery. Great for sandwiches and also with pita chips. Yummy!
This is basically my chicken salad except I add both chopped golden Delicious apple and green grapes and leave out the honey and cranberries........it's an easy to tweak chicken salad to make your own and everyone loves the flavor combos! What I especially love is Southern Living's use of tart shells in the presentation........who'd have thought of that? I will use some mini pate brisee shells I make the next time........like a cold chicken pot pie that would be very impressive to serve to guests or as others have said for showers and such. Caprese or fruit salad on the side would be spectacular. Thanks for the ideas!
