Oh, this is the perfect Summer chix salad! I'm trying it this week. We don't have Duke's mayo up here, is it better than Hellmans?


Sunday 9th of July 2023

Jennifer, It will be delicious with either mayo. Let me know how you like it.


Saturday 8th of July 2023

Rachel, you've taken this next level by putting the salad on these pretty croissants. I'm definitely going to give this recipe a try.

I will have to skip the almonds (nut allergy in the family), but I know it will still be delicious.

Happy weekend to you. xoxo

Lisa, Yes, it will great even without the almonds.
