I'm always glad to find treasures here that make my mouth water just reading them. The pictures help as well, don't cha know. We are an elderly disabled military guy&doll, so your recipes are a way for us to eat at home well. It is nice not to have to always give away extras to neighbors, altho we still do that also. I am thinking that I'm going to add some craisins to the recipe, as we like those in our "fancy chicken salad", along with white, not black, pepper. I have had experience in the food industry over the years, so I know from reading the recipe it is a scream, a real gas. I dig it plainly and surely. For our health, I may utilize plain 2parts Grk yogurt and 1part mayo. I'm trying to get as much protein in our system. Ciao for now. Chow for laters. hahahaha What a delight. Keep the kitchen grinding out these delightful recipes. The even have, on occasion, spurred me to adopt a method or technique to adapt some of our decades old collection personal extended family favorites. We don't get out much, living below the poverty level. But we can eat like we're a prince & princess because of you. Thanks to you, and peace. _ga-
