Chicken Salad with Pecans & Dried Cherries
Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through Step 3. Add pecans and cherries just before serving; refrigerate for up to 1 day.
Tip: Toast nuts before using in a recipe for the best flavor. To toast whole nuts, spread on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F, stirring once, until fragrant, 7 to 9 minutes. To toast chopped, small or sliced nuts, cook in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.
