Orient Express Chicken Salad 


This always-popular salad makes use of lots of convenience items, but it’s still healthy and nutritious. I created it one Mother’s Day and received rave reviews. It’s perfect for a fancy lunch and comes together in no time flat! –Sara Dziadosz, Olathe, Kansas

As you waste your breath complaining about life, someone out there is breathing their last.

Appreciate what you have.

Be thankful and stop complaining.

Live more, complain less.

Have more smiles, less stress.
