the chicken salad that rivals all others

No joke.
This is the best chicken salad recipe you'll ever find.
And I'm not exaggerating.
Mike can't stand chicken salad.
He stays far away from it.
To sum it up:  he's not a fan.

So when I told him I found this recipe for chicken salad that I wanted to try.  He reluctantly relented.  Because if it was going to be like any of his past experiences, it wouldn't end very well.

I made it.
He ate it.  {he's so sweet, isn't he??}
And he loved it.

To push it even farther, he asks me to "make that awesome chicken salad" all the time.  

So here it is.
I think you'll like it.
If not, don't blame me.  Or my husband.  Blame your taste-buds.  Because they should know better...
