“Wonderful chicken salad for a hot summer day, but a great taste any time of year. A nice change from the usual. The lemon adds a refreshing taste, along with the cucumber. My family loves this one. I prefer to use chicken breast from a rotissere chicken. Also, for the cucumber we really like the taste of the English or Burpless/seedless cucumber. They are the ones wrapped individually in sealed plastic wrap in the produce dept. beside the regular cucumbers.”
