Well of course I like it I submitted it. Just wanted to add that I use SLICED water chestnuts that I then halve. Enjoy. Read More

Thanks Sandy for a great recipe! The only thing I added was a little ground black pepper. Served this over a bed of butter lettuce and received nothing but raves. Will certinely add to my recipe box. Read More

Made this with leftover Thanksgiving turkey. There is enough crunch from the water chestnuts and almonds so I omitted the celery. I had some shortly after I made it and the water chestnuts distinctly tasted like the lemon juice. However when I had some the next day all the flavors had melded together perfectly and it was awesome! (I didn't add the grapes when I made it because I've done this before to other chicken salads and it makes it a bit watery and unattractive. So I just add in some grapes right before I serve it.) This chicken salad is much better the next day. Thanks for posting the recipe! Read More
