Rated 4 out of 5 by from yummy for the tummy I liked this but would sub the canned pineapple for fresh Dole pineapple Gold. I would do this because it would add to the fresh taste of the other salad ingredients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED IT You can use rotisserie chicken, shredded or cubed. Also, I added some chopped crunchy, cashews. And a sprinkling of parsley. Seve with some buttery flakey croissants…or toasted bread. Could do this with turkey :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wasn't sure if I would like mixing pineapple and ranch flavors. I omitted the celery because I hate it, but I added in water chestnuts to get that missing crunch! Ranch and pineapple wasn't my favorite, but it was definitely an experience of two different flavors combining.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from love it I already love chicken salad. THis version is so good also. will add it to my rotation

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the pineapple in this dish Forgot to get celery so ended up using water chestnuts for the crunchy and that was very tasty as well; I think the pineapple chunks need to be cut down a little, the can at the store has HUGE chunks in it. I used it on tortillas so as not to get bread too soggy; was surprised that such a small amount of mayo and pineapple juice made it so moist, but it worked great. Just need to be able to stir up well each day before eating more of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic, good for potlucks This recipe is a hit, but I have modified it just a bit to sweeten it up, a lil more salt and sliced the celery very thin

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is like an upgraded chicken salad. If you love ranch you should definitely try this. The sweetness of pineapple and tangy of the ranch pair very well together.
