Fruited Chicken Salad
Why I Love This Recipe
This is a recipe from my very good friend Gerry who made it for one of our annual Christmas luncheons. Every Wednesday we meet for breakfast, we call it our therapy. We also go out to lunch for our birthdays and every Christmas we take turns having lunch at each others house. There were 10 of us, but two of our friends have passed away over the last 20 years. I hope you all enjoy this recipe.
