Committed to being more healthy?  Or, are ya just tired of too much rich food and need a break? Well, this recipe is just the ticket.  I am a huge fan of chicken salad.  (Just ask Cindy Chafin!) I have tried all kinds, but this one makes me the happiest.  I also love putting it on a fresh cucumber (and even a radish at times) and saving those calories for something a little more indulgent.  Whether it is summer or winter, try this refreshing lunch.  (And, it’s gluten-free!)
