Sunshine Chicken Salad
No two chicken salad recipes are alike. Sunshine Chicken Salad, for example, is bursting with fruity flavor. Grapes and pineapple are added to the chicken, and everything is coated in a sweet and creamy dressing that makes the whole thing come together. You can use plain yogurt, but pineapple or pina colada yogurt adds a little more sunshine. This refreshing salad makes a terrific lunch and would be a nice addition to a spring or summer potluck. If you want some crunch, add celery and water chestnuts.
