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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Things I love chicken salad, but the regular chicken salad sometimes gets old. Add Ranch dressing and some pineapple - you have a new chicken salad that tastes great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yum yum!!! This chicken salad was absolutely amazing I was looking for a chicken salad that was different from any other salad I normally have. This one was it!! adding the pineapple to this chicken salad is what made it different but the only thing I had to change about this recipe with sicing the celery a lot smaller

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.
