This is a great recipe to build on. I would rate this recipe a 4 as is..and a 10 with a few modifications. Here are a few suggestions to turn this into a 10. I doubled the recipe. Use one "broasted chicken". Use one 8 oz. cream cheese Add one packet of sweetNLow to pineapple juice. Add a couple stalks of celery Use cashews for the nuts. Dressing use 1/2 mayo and 1/2 sour cream Throw in a little green onion Throw in some dill. Thanks so much for this recipe. Its a keeper!


I made this for a Hawaiian themed potluck at work and it was a big hit. I doubled the recipe. I added an extra 1/2 cup more pinapple then suggested. I used one cream cheese package 8 oz instead of 2 3oz. The only thing I would suggest is adding 2 packages of Splenda with your pinapple juice ( as previously suggested). I didn't want to add too much juice for fear of making it runny. Everyone loved it and asked for the recipe. Will make this again!


I absolutely love this recipe!! The cream cheese adds a flavor that melds perfectly with the Miracle Whip tang! I like to use walnuts instead of almonds, and I use fresh grilled chicken breast in place of the canned, and it is soo good. I eat it until I pop!!
