Paula, You are one of the best. You always have my support and I love cooking with your recipes. Thank you

This recipe turned out great. Before chilling, I ladled a rather generous gob of dressing into the chicken salad because I love garlic and worcestershire. To give extra crunch the next time, I may veg it up with thinly sliced celery or water chestnuts.
