Fruited Chicken Salad with Honey Dijon

fruited chicken salad with honey dijon by the frugal hausfrau

Way back when, my sister and I were discussing what should be on the menu for a family get together and we got down to the salad dressing. “Honey Dijon?” I asked. It was kind of a new thing then. “No one likes that,” she said. But I didn’t say, “I do, I do!” And goodness help me, I do.  Home-made at least. Don’t tell my sis!
