  1. You can also make sandwiches with this salad and turn it into a chicken salad sandwich with your favorite bread or fresh croissants.
  2. I used Granny Smith apples for this recipe, but you can use whichever type you like.
  3. Bosc pears can be found at most grocery stores. They are more brown in colour that a regular green pear. You can use whichever type you prefer.
