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.
