Personal Notes:
This is a time consuming recipe, but it is the best chicken salad I have ever tasted. I got this recipe from a patient when I worked in physical therapy. Because this lady did not measure anything, all measurements are approximates. Once you
make this you will know what you want to add or take away. Also, it is important to use Helman's mayo.
