FRUITED CHICKEN SALAD


What can be more tasty than a cold chicken salad with fruit on a hot day?
I love, love this salad and have made it often since my first taste
at the home of my friend Ginny in MI.
It's perfect for a tea party in the garden ... a bridal shower  .... a picnic..
and today it was delicious for everyday with good company.


Place chicken chunks, celery, pineapple, orange sections
and toasted almonds in a bowl.


Pour marinade over all and gently toss; chill for one hour.
Drain marinade and add dressing; toss gently to blend.


I served a mound on a lettuce leaf.  Others servings were
 rolled up in a wrap.  Either way, it was delicious!
