Before moving to the South, I'd only known chicken salad to be bland and drenched in mayonnaise. After tasting my house mom's (Doris) chicken salad, I realized that chicken salad could be delicious! This is my take on her recipe. I love how the mayonnaise takes a back seat and up front and center are the fresh fruit flavors and the texture of the crunchy celery and pecans.
