Monday Food Post - Cranberry Pecan Chicken Salad

I have a favorite chicken salad recipe which you can see here, but when I saw this one it looked so good I had to make it.  It isn't that far away from my original but doesn't have the green onions and this one has the addition of cranberries.  I found the recipe at this blog called, Life Currents.  It is another great looking food blog and I shall be visiting it again for more recipes.

Cranberry Pecan Chicken Salad - serves 6

3 cups cooked, shredded chicken
3/4 cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup dried, sweetened cranberries
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon white pepper

Combine all the ingredients 

mixing well with the mayonnaise.  

Refrigerate for an hour to allow flavors to combine.  Serve chilled.

What did I think of this recipe?  Excellent, very tasty.  I used a one-cup measure to put the salad on top my serving plate, first adding a few lettuce leaves.  It was a lovely dinner last night.
