Nice twist on chicken salad however if I were going to go so far as to call it "gourmet" I wouldn't used canned chicken... I opted to use some leftover citrus grilled chicken I had on hand. I also used some red grapes for a little color. I didn't have cucumber salad dressing so I used Hellman's light mayo cut with a bit of sour cream and added a bit of salt pepper and just a bit of curry powder. Overall very good on toasted whole grain bread. Read More

I didn't care for this chicken salad. I took one bite with the oranges and immediately removed them. They were just too over-powering for this salad. After that, it still was not that good. The flavor just wasn't there. Read More

Although I did make changes to this recipie I'm still giving it 5 stars. I used left over boneless baked chicken breast instead of the canned chicken. I searched and couldn't find cucumber dressing in any of our markets so I substituted light mayo. Also I think the green grapes would be tasty but I used seedless red ones as I had them in the house. The red grapes orange mandarin oranges green celery and brown nuts gave it a nice presentation. Read More

I really enjoyed this simple salad on pita bread. I used a cucumber ranch light-done-right dressing and it was wonderful. Read More

This is excellent. I used red grapes in addition to the green. I couldn't locate the creamy cucumber dressing at my local (and often inadequate) grocery but used cucmber ranch instead. I forgot to add the mandarin oranges and it was still great. I served it at a luncheon on lettuce leaves and ate the extra in grainy bread sandwiches. Yum! I will make this again! Read More

This is great I've made it several times and I e-mailed it to my mom and she loves it too! I'm looking for a way to make low calorie creamy cucumber salad dressing so I can make it low calorie as well. It's definitely the best chicken salad I've ever tasted. Read More
