Who wants a delicious  and healthy pecan pineapple chicken salad!  It’s almost summer, which means it’s time for picnics and BBQ’s! Since it gets so hot here I definitely prefer colder dishes during the summer months.  This healthy pineapple chicken salad is sure to be a hit.  You can make it and put it on sandwiches or just simply eat it by itself.  It’s the perfect healthy twist to the classic chicken salad minus all the heavy mayo.
