Chicken, Prunes and Cucumber Salad Recipe

This salad has unusual ingredients combination: prunes, eggs, cucumber, walnuts and chicken, as the title says.

There is no onions or garlic, so it can be served early in the day as well later.

It is also one of few salads in my recipe inventory which does not call for mayo.
