“After dining at a cafe in Michigan about 10 years ago, I tried duplicating this scrumptious twist on Chicken Salad at home. The cherries can be ordered on-line these days, which makes it much easier for those of us living where cherries are not readily available. Regular milk can be substituted for buttermilk, if necessary.”

Mia, if you didn't do it right on, you sure came out with a winner on this one! I made two halves, one with the apples and one without. All I can say is they are both scrumptious. If your tastes lean more toward savory, leave out the apples. If you want your tastebuds to explode with complexity, definitely put the apples in. If the dried cherries weren't so pricey, I would even double or triple the cherries and leave the apples out. No matter what you choose, this recipe is perfect. Just the right amount of dressing, too! Thanks for sharing Mia.

I absolutly LOVE this recipe!! I have made it for several friends and they all rave about it. Today I altered it a little for Thanksgiving leftover turkey; I used chopped turkey breast instead of chicken, dried cranberries in place of cherries, and walnuts instead of pecans. Delicious!! You might as well double the recipe while your at it.

This was great! I had it at a party and everone loved it. I had to make so much, I substituted Carving Board cooked chicken strips, 1 lb. for every 6 chicken breasts called for...worked fine. I have also found out using half real mayo and half non fat mayo tastes better than the purchased low fat.
