Chicken salads are very popular on the blog, so today I’m sharing another version. The advantage of this recipe is that instead of mayonnaise, it is made with sour cream sauce and is therefore healthier and less caloric. It’s quite tasty, it’s good to refrigerate for a few hours after making, because then the flavors are better. I think it would really do well with some fresh flavor, like cucumber.
