Kiwi Chicken Salad with Nuts
Chicken salad with kiwi and nuts is a light snack that can be served on the festive table or cooked for dinner. Nuts diversify the texture, and seasonings enrich the taste. The dish should be prepared immediately before serving, since sliced fresh fruits can not be added in advance - they will secrete juice, and the snack can turn into an unappetizing mess. If kiwi is sweet, then you can do without cane sugar, then there will be less calories.
