Fruity Chicken Salad

Yes, I've been an absentee blogger as of late. I have very good reasons, though. The kids were sick with a stomach bug, and it took JD more than a week to get back to normal. Darn that MSPI! He was having a milk reaction (from something I must have accidentally eaten at a restaurant) when the bug hit him. Since his gut was already compromised from the MSPI, it took forever for the flu to pass. Poor kid! He was miserable!

Also, we've been out of town and trying to catch up on life. So we've been busy, but I have lots of recipes to share!

I promised several friends that I would post this recipe from my friend Joy. It's so good and easy. She likes to serve it with crackers, or you can put it on bread or a bed of lettuce. Very yummy!

Fruity Chicken Salad

2 cans chicken, drained
2 cups celery, diced
3/4 cup onion, diced
1 cup Craisins
1 can pineapple, drained
1 cup slivered almonds, optional
1-2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. dill
2 cups mayonnaise

Combine first six ingredients. Mix together last three then pour over salad. Serve. Keep leftovers refrigerated.
