Chicken Salad with Dried Cherries

This is the last post in the series of posts I have done regarding the use of the sour cherries I was recently given. So far I've made Cherry Pie, I've dried the cherries then rehydrated them and now I've made chicken salad with the addition of some of the rehydrated cherries. I usually add grapes to chicken salad but the cherries were a nice change. For the chicken I like to roast the chicken but this time, I used a rotisserie chicken.  This is my favorite chicken salad recipe. I hope you enjoy!

Chicken Salad with Dried Cherries
Adapted from

2 1/2 C diced,cooked chicken meat
1 C chopped celery
