Cranberry Pecan Chicken Salad

This is one of my favorite salads during the holiday season.  The Cranberries just make it so festive! Feel free to use light mayo and sour cream, it is just as delicious. 

Cranberry Pecan Chicken Salad
1/2 to 3/4 cup mayo 
1/4  cup sour cream
1  tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1  teaspoon soy sauce
1/2  teaspoon curry powder
1/2  teaspoon kosher salt
1/4  teaspoon black pepper

3  cups boneless skinless chicken breast, cooked and shredded
1/2  cup celery, thinly sliced
4  green onions, sliced
1/2  cup dried Cranberries
1/2  cup chopped pecans, toasted

In a small bowl mix 1/2 cup mayo, sour cream, lemon juice, soy sauce, curry powder, kosher salt and pepper. 

In a medium bowl, combine the chicken, celery, green onions, dried Cranberries and toasted pecans. Gently mix in the mayo mixture. Add the remaining 1/4 cup of mayo if the salad is not as creamy as desired.
