Freda Kimsey's Chicken Salad
Why I Love This Recipe
This recipe is from a friend of mine. They owned an Orange Julius in our mall and Freda and her husband Dan have been long time friends. I became addicted to her Chicken Salad Croissant sandwiches. Then they had to close their business and I haven't had it for years. At church last week I asked Freda if she still made it and she said yes, for lots of wedding receptions and such. Then she told me that I could find her recipe on line at WTAP.com ,our local TV station under recipes. So here it is, I know everyone will love it as much as I do.
