In a medium-sized bowl add sliced celery, nuts, dried fruit, and mayonnaise. Stir to combine the mixture well. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Store in a covered container for up to 3 days before serving. This Chicken Salad can be served on a bed of lettuce or served in fancy rolls, or even on plain bread. I personally love to serve this chicken salad with a nice bowl of soup. I don't think you can beat that soup and sandwich combination.
