Wonderful chicken salad with a creamy honey mustard dressing! I used leftover grilled chicken vs. canned and substituted chopped red delicious apples for the green grapes. I also used fresh chives instead of dried. It's crunchy and sweet - a definite keeper. Read More

Wonderful! Dijon mustard? who would've thought but it really made the chicken salad delicious. It didn't taste "mustard-y". But it did add a mellow zing to it. Just what I was looking for. thank you for sharing Read More

Very nice chicken salad - I cut down to basically one serving using leftover roasted chicken instead of canned. I used a soy mayonnaise substitute which tastes great when blended with the dijon. I forgot to add the honey and didn't miss it used fresh chives and added some chopped scallion. Served over a salad of greens and sliced tomatoes. Read More
