All-Time Favorite Chicken Salad

This is, hands down, our favorite version of chicken salad. It’s packed with vegetables, fruit, and plenty of protein, so it’s basically a meal all in one dish. Eat it as a salad with a fork, use crackers to scoop it up, or put it on a sandwich. No matter how you serve it, everyone always seems to love it.
