Cranberry Walnut Chicken Salad Recipe

Cranberry Walnut Chicken Salad Recipe

This is a really appetizing and filling low-carb meal idea: Start with the chicken salad and serve with a side of steamed or raw broccoli and low-carb bread toasted with a slice of cheese. I got this simple recipe from my cousin Meg after having it at her house. I don't normally like chicken salad, but this was so light and fresh tasting, compared to other chicken salad I've had, that I ended up asking her what was in it. I think it's the cranberries and walnuts that give it an nontraditional flavo.
