Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad


This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful.


Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!
