Fast Layered Chicken Salad

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. + chilling


8-10 servings

I prepare this satisfying salad Saturday evening and serve it to my husband and sons on Sunday after a round of gold. It's a winner on warm days - with a unique mix of vegetables like bean sprouts, green onions, water chestnuts and pea pods. And it's lovely in a glass bowl. -Joanne Trentadue, Racine, Wisconsin
