A sweet and tangy twist on a classic chicken salad! This pineapple chicken salad is deliciously fun and bold. The sweet yet sour kick from tart dried cherries and pineapple is complimented by the creamy dressing and crisp green onions. It is served well chilled on its own, or wrapped in a soft wheat or whole grain tortilla.
