Chicken-Horseradish Salad

I love a good chicken salad because it's so diverse. Eat it with some crackers for a snack or put it on a tortilla and make a wrap. It's also perfect for showers or luncheons. This is my absolute favorite recipe for chicken salad. The horseradish adds just enough kick, and I love the addition of salty, crunchy pecans. I don't like grapes in my chicken salad, but if you do I imagine this recipe would do great with that addition!
 
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
