“The sweetness of the dressing and cranberries along with the savory of the onions and celery, makes this a wonderfully refreshing salad. Great to take along to picnics or potlucks.”

Very Good. I used shredded chicken instead of cubes. Also added some toasted slivered almonds, minced red onion and minced red and orange bell pepper.

Sounded great so I chose to make it for a cookout. Yum! I did add to it tho - Cheese that I cubed, sliced olives, then I cut up (small pieces)steamed broccoli - cooled. I added a little more dressing since I added more veggies (& broccoli soaks up liquid!)So delicious and I was asked to make for Memorial Day Cookout as well! I might add slightly sauteed zucchini &/or summer squash next time!
