I'm not particularly fond of canned chicken but my cousin, Laurie, made this salad while I was visiting her and it was very good. The cranberries are a bit high in carbs but you could cut back on them. However, I don't think the salad would be the same without them. I used sliced almonds instead of slivered in mine because that's what I had on hand. Taste the salad before adding salt. The chicken that I used was quite salty and I didn't need to add any. You'll get about four servings if you eat this as a salad and about 6 servings if you use it on a small sandwich. It's very good on one of my Flax Sandwich Buns. Click the photo to see a close-up.
