Chicken Waldorf Salad

I've never had a waldorf salad before and was kind of worried about this recipe. The ingredients for the dressing were a little scary looking at them by themselves. However, I thought the flavors were excellent! Scott wasn't a huge fan because it was "so hard to eat" with all the little pieces. Next time, I'm going to try them in pita pockets instead of just a salad! You could make this with rotisserie chicken from the supermarket if you don't feel like cooking some nights too!
