I got this recipe from my mother-in-law! She hosted a luncheon and served this on croissants and it was soooo yummy!
2 whole chicken breast, cooked and shredded (save some time and use an already cooked rotisserie chicken)
1 lg can crushed pineapple
1 c. celery , chopped
1 c. walnuts, chopped (optional)
1/3 c green onion, chopped (use both white and green parts)
1 red apple, chopped with peel (red delicious)
1 green apple, chopped (granny smith)
Drain pineapple, reserve juice (for sauce). Mix salad ingredients, chopping and adding apples last to prevent browning. In separate bowl mix sauce ingredients until smooth. Pour sauce over salad and mix well. Cover and refrigerate. Stir before use. Works wel in pita pocket or on a croissant.
1 c. mayo
1/4 c. reserved pineapple juice
1/2 tsp. grated lemon peel
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. poppy seeds (optional)
