I think I will add plain yogurt in place of the sour cream and use less mayo next time. Maybe use grapes cut in half instead of raisins.

I don't go for scallions, but otherwise, yum! Also, if you add walnuts, you've got yourself a Waldorf Salad w/ chicken. Double yum!

I plan to try this with the leftover Thanksgiving turkey. I will also substitute the raisins with dried cranberries and leave out the salt.

I thought the 14 grams of sugar was kind of high - I will add less raisins which should lower the sugar count. I will also add some walnuts for "crunch" and which are good for you.

This is a very good recipe that is low carb enough to enjoy without feeling guilty. I plan on fixing this using some of my leftover turkey instead of the chicken.

Salad Lovers this is a new recipe I found in a Health magazine,for me I haven't tried it yet..I think the sugar content might be too much for me,also the sodium content is kinda high but I guess I can leave out the salt…
