CB Chicken Salad

This is a knock-off of Corner Bakery's D.C. Chicken Salad. I made it last week when the 4th grade was responsible for teacher lunch day. Here is the original recipe because I made changes below.

1/2 c light Miracle Whip
1/2 c skim milk
1 tbsp lemon juice
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper

4 chicken breasts, cooked and chopped into cubes
1/3 c small shallot, finely chopped
2 celery ribs, chopped
1/2 c granny smith apple, chopped
1/2 c pear, chopped
1 tbsp lemon juice (keeps apples and pears from turning brown)
1/4 c dried currant
1/2 c slivered almonds,toasted

Combine (with a whisk) the MW, milk, lemon juice, salt and pepper until smooth. Set dressing aside. Mix salad ingredients together and then top with dressing to evenly coat the salad. Serve with croissants, bread, crackers or on a bed of lettuce.
