This Chicken Mandarin Cranberry Walnut Salad was one of my very first chicken salad recipes when I started Whole30 back in 2018. It is still a favorite here and we just love all the flavors from the sweet mandarins, tangy cranberries and crunchy walnuts! The dressing has a secret ingredient in it and trust me it adds just the right amount of zing to this delicious salad!
