Chicken Salad

Submitted by Carol

When my husband first introduced me to this recipe, I was skeptical. I mean, how good can a chicken salad really be? After a few bites, I was hooked.

Servings: 10

Ingredients:
1 – 8 oz package of macaroni rings
3 C chicken, cooked and cubed
½ C onion, chopped
¼ C green pepper, chopped
1 C celery, chopped
1 medium can pineapple tidbits or chunks
1 C green grapes, cut in half
1 C Colby or cheddar cheese, cubed or slivered
4 hard-boiled eggs, cut up
¾ C mayonnaise
½ C heavy cream, whipped
1 – 4 oz can of shoestring potatoes
1 small package slivered almonds

Directions:
Cook macaroni rings, rinse with cold water and cool. In the meantime, whip the cream, add salad dressing, salt and pepper to taste and set aside. Add all other ingredients to the macaroni rings except for the almonds and shoestring potatoes. Pour over the cream mixture and mix well. (Tastes best if you let the salad sit for a half hour or longer). Just before serving add the almonds and shoestring potatoes.
