Our new Fresh in the Deli recipe this month is the tasty Cherry Chicken Salad with Citrus Dressing, courtesy of our friends at Whole Foods Cooperative in Duluth, Minnesota. This light, summery chicken salad combines Buddy’s local, all-natural chicken with chewy wild rice, dried cherries and snow peas in a sweet lemon-lime vinaigrette and makes a great one-dish lunch!
