light and creamy chicken salad dressing

  • 1/2 cup light mayo

Blend all the ingredients for the dressing until smooth and set aside.

In a large bowl combine chicken, celery, pecans and grapes.

I used this recipe to fix 8 generously filled croissant sandwiches. You could easily make 10 less stuffed sandwiches or double or triple the recipe to feed a crowd.
This recipe can easily be halved for a small batch, or it keeps very well in the refrigerator for several days in an airtight container.

Pecans can be omitted or substituted with walnuts or cashews.

ENJOY!
