Chicken Salad

I'm always pursuing a good chicken salad.  Usually, I start exploring recipes when I find myself in possession of some random ingredients I need to use up, like celery.  It's not like I'm gonna eat that stuff by itself....puh lease.  I discovered this recipe via Cooking Classy last summer, and it's DEFINITELY a keeper.
So if you don't want to eat celery raw....or need a great new chicken salad recipe.  Try this one!
