My husband love it

Is so ease to make it takes no time and is even better the second day love it .

better than your average

This chicken-craisin salad allows you to add more cranberries as opposed to the deli type (which I did). As I am not a fan of mayonnaise, I substitute yoghurt and/or sour cream in meat, potato, pasta, etc. salads, but thick, chunky blue cheese was delicious! I was not aware of the craisin clusters product, but I would suggest a scrumptious new flavor with diced dried apricots that were chocolate dipped. Both fruits are EXCELLENT when enrobed in chocolate and compliment each other. Let me know when they're available in the Denver, CO area.


The combination of flavours was amazing even on gluten free bread! Big thunbs up!!
