Shhh! Top Secret

 Here is a top secret recipe for the best chicken salad ever!


This recipe came from a wonderful friend and amazing cook.  
You know, the kind of cook who can throw in a little of this and a little of that and come out with a masterpiece. 

This recipe is top secret because no one really knows the exact measurements that go into this yummy salad. Based upon my friend's suggestions and estimates, I came up with this recipe which is pretty close to perfect.

The one thing that is absolutely necessary to make this recipe taste absolutely wonderful is the mayonnaise.  


Normally I wouldn't be a brand snob, but in this recipe nothing but Hellmann's will do!

Another thing that adds to the wonderfulness of this chicken salad is croissants.

You must serve it on croissant rolls!  :)

Well, without further ado here is the recipe:

1/4 of a medium onion - diced
1 t. vinegar
