Fresh peach chicken salad

Fresh peaches, mint and walnuts make this chicken salad pop!This delicious chicken salad showcases fresh juicy peaches. It is easy enough to make for an everyday lunch or dinner, but special enough for company. The tangy peaches make the flavour pop as does the hit of fresh mint. Make it as I did, with a rotisserie chicken from your favourite shop. It is a snap.
