Chicken salad with kiwi and nuts is a snack that can be served on a festive table or prepared for dinner. Incredibly delicious combination of juicy sweet and sour kiwi with chicken and cheese is the main highlight of the salad. Nuts diversify the texture, and seasoning will enrich the taste. The dish should be prepared immediately before serving, as the sliced fresh fruit can not be added in advance - they give out juice, and the appetizer can turn into an unappetizing mess. If kiwi is sweet, then you can do without cane sugar, then the calories will be less.
